ISP that doesn't insist you have their line rental


[link to this post]
 
Struggling to find an ISP that doesn't insist you pay them extra for line rental. Is their such a thing nowadays and how do you search for them? There is already a line at the property and I just want broadband. Don't want to look down the list, chose a provider and then see they insist you take their line rental on top of the quoted monthly charge.

Same reply as to your post in TTTS.

Nearly all ISPs bar BT Retail, Sky and TalkTalk will do broadband only, as long as you do have line rental somewhere. Which you do.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 51.8/16.8Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Nearly all ISPs


Thanks, but http://www.thinkbroadband.com/search/package/basic.html :-

Taking the first few listed as examples.

Line rental from EE is required at a cost of £14.75 per month.

This broadband deal includes free weekend landline calls, and landline rental is payable to Sky at £14.50 a month.

This produce requires you to take your voice line rental via PlusNet which starts at £14.50 per month.

You chose to answer both threads. wink

Seriously though, I still can't see how to search using the options given. frown

"The perils of cross-posting" smile.

When on My Home page I nearly always go to TTTS first if it has something new. So got sucked in there and dealt with that.

I know! It was just for the record.

The 2 of you are X-posting like mad and leaking the 2 topics 'Which ISPs do x?' with 'How do I do a TBB search for which ISPs do x?' into each other.
