    What services have you got and how much do you pay each month? Basically i only want the internet but do i need a phone line for that?
    Some packages that i have seen on TV look quite cheap.

    im with virgin (so cable) and i have XL tv, phone line (not sure on size) and XL broadband and my bill is around £65 a month obviously there are cheaper options than that
    with virgin media depending on your area you dont have to take a phone line you can just take the internet x

    You can have basic sky for £18 a month (HD another £10 and different packages like entertainment/kids/news for £1 a month) with that you get free internet and phone, phone line rental is about £12 a month. I pay £70 a month but I have sky sports/movies and pay an extra £7.50 month for internet cos I kept going over their crappy free usage limit x

    We have:

    The full SKY package for £27 per month currently (normally 50 odd!) as OH phoned up and was gonna cancel, and they offered us half price for 6 months :)

    We get our unlimited Internet and unlimited phonecalls to local numbers and line rental thorough BT Infinity for £36 per month but we get amazing internet speeds with that, thats why its so expensive.

    Yes you do need a phone line for internet :thumbup:

    The cheap bundles almost always involve you keeping a phone line, so you need to add that cost on to the price. Not using them now, but we were paying £20/month for internet only (no phone line or television) with Virgin.
