Well, I'm a Plusnet FTTP customer. Have been for over 2 years. And although there is a copper land line (that's how I got ADSL before the FTTP install) , Plusnet have allowed that line to be ceased as the FTTP trial does not require a working home phone. There is a thread on the FTTP community forum all about ceasing your copper (or alu) phone line. Drop Phone Line
And yes, the max speed from Plusnet is 80Mbps but the OP was complaining about costs so that limits what you can do.
And finally, yes I know you can use VOIP over all the other technologies, but I was highlighting to the OP that with Plusnet you do not need a phone line at all, so if you want a pseudo land line then VOIP is a way to go.
