Bt Landline In Uk


slippery when wet

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

My wife and I are moving home soon and wish to set up a home phone and internet. However we dont wish to use BT if we can possibly do so as we have had difficulties with BT before. However BT sem to have the monolopy on their landline. Even if you use shy as an example a BT line is required.

Is there any other way so that I can avoid using BT.

Many thanks...slippery

If you're in an area that is cabled for Virgin Media you can get cable tv, internet and phone whilst avoiding BT altogether. Go to http://allyours.virginmedia.com/ and stick your postcode in to see if you're in their area.

I'm with Tiscali, I pay £15 a month for broadband and line rental, the line rental is payed to Tiscali not BT, the line rental is £10.50 a month so the broadband works out at £4.50 a month for up to 8 meg with unlimited downloads, can't fault the service.

But if you use Virgin for your landline you don't have a choice on your internet provider, you can only have Virgin internet.

From what I've heard of other internet providers I wouldn't want anyone else but Virgin. For £33 a month I get a phone line, 100+ TV channels and 10Mb/s broadband. I've had one techie problem since it was installed and that was sorted out with one phone call because the whole nine yards is the responsibility of Virgin. If I had an ADSL installation it's quite possible that I could spend weeks playing pingpong between BT and my ISP.
