Just wanted to ask has anybody got BT infinity but without the use of an active landline ?

Is it possible to have or keep Infinity and do away with the landline to reduce costs ?

Thanks

Thanks - according to area checker the latter isn't available so looks like the answer is no then

don't worry if they make the same pigs ear of it as mine yesterday you will be left with a high speed broadband (81mb!) but no phone line for calls! but hey....no more PPI phone calls or bogus Microsoft engineers offering to fix my pc,its a win win situation! well done BT...

it is a no. it's not possible, although I think if you're in a virgin cable area you can have Internet without a phone line.

That's kinda exactly what I'm looking for - no landline' no unwanted calls ( aggro ) at reduced price ( obviously ) is that what you did then ?

I wish you could get it without landline too!

I had this exact problem when I moved to BT infinity, no phone line but it took me about a week before I realised. Called BT to report it and the engineer went to the box and kindly re-connected the phone but disconnected the fibre. No internet access for the three days that it took to get it sorted and all they kindly gave me back was a refund on the days without the access. Their customer service was/is a joke.
Vodafone don't charge landline rental if taking out a fibre contract. I am waiting for my current BT contract to end next month and intend to move for that saving but I can see their is a £60 installation fee you have to suck up and it's a 18 month contract.
Any feedback from anyone already with them?

Everyone charges like rental some people are just a bit dimmer and don't realise that it's just hidden. Look at the prices between a supplier with line rental and one without. They're basically the same.

actually no! one of my wife's school friends is in a hospice, my wife has exceeded her mobile minutes and she really needed a landline to coordinate hospice visits with school friends ... but i must say in normal circumstances i would prefer this option... but i think the long term future will be wireless high speed via mobile signals and that will be the death knell for sat dishes and overhead lines.....
