Taking broadband and home phone from the same provider is a great option to save your money.Choose from our selected broadband and phone packages based on price, speed and usage allowance, free gifts & special offers which we update on regular basis.Bundling home phone with broadband could also help you get free UK calls and low-cost mobile & international calls.

Broadband only or broadband and phone?

Home broadband which generally requires a phone line or landline for installation involves two communication services – broadband and phone. With all telecom firms offering both ‘broadband only’ plans and broadband & phone bundles, it requires a careful consideration of pros and cons of both the options, before you choose one of them.

When it comes to current market pricing and features, bundles are definitely more attractive than stand-alone, individual packages. With the exclusive benefits that come with broadband, phone and TV packages like free connection, cheaper call rates & line rental and introductory offers, it is possible to save hundreds of pounds on your bill. Contacting just one supplier for your billing issues or technical support is another advantage with a bundled service.

By contrast, the main downside of taking two or more services from different providers is that you miss out all these money saving opportunities. What’s more, the total cost also tends to be much higher when you take phone and broadband from two different providers.

Our postcode checker with Ofcom approved price comparison tables is quite useful in finding out the best available options in your area. Not only you can compare broadband only and phone and broadband packages separately, you can also browse through other details like total cost, line rental and call rates so you can find the cheapest, best value broadband package for you.

What is line rental?

Residential broadband is delivered via telephone line (BT) or cable (Virgin Media) network. Customers who take broadband are required to pay certain fee per month for using telephone line or landline as well. This is called line rental which needs to be added to the price of your broadband plan to get the total cost.

Currently, broadband and bundles’ prices include line rental fee to help customers find the total cost of the service without any hassle. However, one-off setup costs still need to be added to this figure to exactly know the total contract cost.

Earlier, working out the cost of your broadband and phone package was a bit tricky part of comparison. Not only you had to do a little mathematics of adding line rental to broadband price to arrive at the total cost, sometimes you have to search line rental charges which ISPs, until recently, were cleverly hiding from a casual broadband consumer’s notice in small print.

This led to ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) instructing providers to advertise line rental inclusive packages on their websites and adverts.

What is line rental saver or value line rental?

Please note, most of the providers currently follow the system of including  line rental in the monthly price, you can simply ignore the line rental cost while comparing the deals.

Standard line rental is the general option which allows you to pay it every month. However, you can save 36% + on line rental, when you pay in advance for 12 months by debit/credit card. This is line rental saver or value rental saver which is available with TalkTalk, BT, Sky and Virgin Media.See how much you can save by comparing these figures:

Standard line rental Line rental saver Savings

Fuel Broadband £17.30 N/A N/A
EE £17.50  £15.75  £21
Post Office £16.99  £14.99  £24

What are inclusive Calls?

Phone and broadband packages either include free weekend calls or evening & weekend calls.

Bundles from BT, Virgin Media and Sky include unlimited weekend calls while TalkTalk, EE, Primus Saver and Tesco offer evening and weekend calls with their packages.

You can add anytime calls with an extra fee which could start from £5 a month.Comparing call rates is also important when you look out for cheap home phone service provider.

Some packages such as TalkTalk Plus and Virgin Media VIP collection include anytime calls plus cheaper international calls which could help you make great savings.

Getting new home phone line

If your home is not connected to a landline service, you have to get it from BT or another provider before you apply for broadband. You can take home phone with broadband so you can save on installation of new line which could cost up to £130.

Currently, you can get new line free or for as little as £30 with suppliers, when you add broadband or buy broadband, phone and TV together. TalkTalk offers more than that. There are also incentives from your new provider when you bundle all these services and you can get to know all the details on our comparison page.

New line installation usually takes a couple of weeks.
