FTTC provider without line rental?


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

FTTC was just installed in my local area (woohoo!!). Anyway, my current broadband subscription has ended, its on a rolling 7 contract now and im looking for an fttc connection now.

I was going to go with Plusnet, however they require you to have your landline with them as well or they cant provide you with the broadband only, same applied to BT. This wouldnt be an issue, except that my line rental is tied in elsewhere.... doh!

Can anyone suggest a decent company at a decent price (need a bare minimum 100gb usage) that will take my broadband only?

Thanks in advance smile

I think somewhere between you and Plusnet someone has got confused.

I am 99% sure you can have Plusnet FTTC on someone els'e line, as long as the line rental company allow it. Who is it with?

As you say, BT do require the line rental to be with themselves.

nope, its part of the agreement when signing up with Plusnet that the line rental goes with it, there is no option to not have it with them

Just double checked, every option with them has £11.99 line rental added on and theirs no option to remove it!

You are looking on the "bundle" pages! Try this one.

Oops! That is ADSLx. Here's the Fibre standalone one.

All Partial LLU (SMPF) ISPs, incl. Plusnet, require you to have a BT Wholesale WLR line (obtained via BT, PO, Plusnet, O2 and maybe a few others). For example:
You'll need a Plusnet or other BT based landline to get our broadband.
Both Full LLU (MPF) ISPs, Sky & TT, require your line to be with themselves.
