When I got O2 a coulpe of months ago they were the best deal at the time, because of the Quidco cashback. worked out about £6 a month for tonnes of usage, not a bad speed too.

Not sure if this is still the best out there.

Just looked at the o2 deal and it looks as though u need a bt land line for that, as I don't have and don't want any landline, wot I'm looking for is broadband installed without the need for a landline

A router connects to a cable coming into your house (ADSL phone line or Virgin cable).

A router cant just get to the internet out of "thin air", it has to connect to something, and what it connects to is a phone line or virgin cable via a wire.

A router is only wi fi between the router and your laptop, but what feeds it has to come in via a wire.

I believe you can get broadband via a satellite, but that is very expensive.

Virgin cable?

You can get broadband into your house if you are on Virgin cable, without a phone line.

They LIKE you to take the phone as well, but if you insist you dont have to, just broadband.

But you still need a wire into your house.

oh yeah, thats strange its been cheaper than that before.

It was £18 at one point so I rang up and had a whinge as I was paying £25 and they reduced it for me.

Virgin are the only option for me as I dont have or ever want a landline phone.
