Why do we need your postcode?

We don’t want to show you a load of deals that you can’t actually get, so by giving us your postcode we show you only the deals that are available where you live. We don’t share your postcode with anyone else. Take a look at our privacy policy to find out more.

Broadband options
Broadband type Fixed-line broadband is available either as standard (ADSL) broadband, or fibre optic. Fibre optic broadband is much faster and more reliable, but it isn’t available everywhere and can cost more.
Monthly usage allowance The amount you download determines the broadband package you should get. To keep things simple, we ask if you would like to see packages which are unlimited. These packages are ideal for users who are online for several hours during the day, or use the internet extensively for entertainment - like downloading movies and TV, streaming entertainment, or playing games. They are also good for large households where several people go online at the same time. If that sounds like you, pick ‘Just unlimited’.
Minimum speed Your broadband speed determines how fast web pages load, files are downloaded, the time streaming video takes to buffer, and more. For a big household, or one where you stream lots of video or play games, a fast speed is recommended

Every home needs a phone

Whether for keeping in touch with friends and family - overseas or just around the corner - or simply to get broadband, most homes aren’t complete without a landline. And with so many line rental deals and call packages to choose from, we’re here to help you pick the right one.

Choosing a home phone deal

Years ago, BT was the UK’s only home phone provider. It’s still the most popular one, but there are now lots of others to choose from, and with increased competition come much better deals.

Most providers also do broadband, and the main ones - like BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media - do TV too, and it’s almost always cheaper to get your broadband, phone and TV together from one provider than separately from different ones.

These are three main things to consider when comparing home phone deals:

  • Line rental - The monthly amount you pay for your landline is usually the most substantial part of your bill. Post Office and Plusnet are two providers that offer relatively cheap line rental.
  • Inclusive calls - Evening and weekend calls to UK landlines are usually included as standard, and you can upgrade to anytime. If you often call friends or family abroad, you can add inclusive international calls too.
  • Should you bundle? - Avoid taking your home phone, broadband and TV from different providers - bundles are virtually always the best deal if you want all three and mean you have just the one bill to keep on top of.

Cheap line rental

If you’re after a cheap phone line, there are providers like Plusnet that specialise in low-cost home phone packages. But before you plump for a cheap broadband deals, think about why you need it.

For example, cheap line rental is pointless if you end up spending more than you’re saving on calls that aren’t included in your package. On the other hand, if you don’t make a lot of calls, it makes sense to look for the cheapest deal.

Cheap calls

To avoid running up phone bills, you can pay upfront for inclusive calls, so you can make calls at specific times of day, to mobiles, or to international numbers, without paying anything extra.

Look at an old phone bill to see when you make calls. Even the cheapest packages normally include evening and weekend calls to UK landlines. And remember, if you want phone and broadband, it’s usually cheaper to get both - and TV if you want that as well - from one provider that does the lot.

Unlimited phone calls

You can upgrade a lot of home phone packages to include unlimited calls at any time of the day or week. Quite a few providers have this option available, including BT, EE, NOW Broadband, Post Office, Sky, TalkTalk, and more. It only costs a few more quid per month, and it's totally worth it if you make a lot of calls.

To find these deals, enter your postcode above, and select 'Inclusive anytime calls' from the phone call filter.

A few providers offer home phone or line rental on its own. They include:

Home phone and broadband deals

Want broadband too? Pretty much every broadband provider gives you a phone line with its internet packages too. It's really easy to find a deal that includes both services, and you can still add whatever calling features and inclusive calls you need.

Plus, if you want both, you have an even bigger choice of providers. Along with those we listed above, these ones also offer home phone as part of a bundle with broadband:

Are there special landline deals for pensioners?

Yes there are, but only from a couple of providers. BT Basic, for instance, is a special tier of landline services for folks on various benefits, including a state pension.

There aren't as many options available here, however. If you want to make a lot of calls during the day, you may be better off with a standard home phone deal.

FAQ

  1. Can I keep my phone number if I switch provider?

    Yes, you can normally keep your existing number if you switch from one provider to another. However if you're a cable customer or need a new line, you may need to get a new one.

    For everything you need to know, see our guide: Can I keep my phone number?

  2. Can I save money by bundling TV, phone and broadband?
    Yes you can. Providers like Sky and Virgin Media offer competitively priced bundles, comprising broadband, home phone and TV, and getting all three services from the same place often leads to significant savings. It also makes it easier to manage finances, as all services come on a single bill.
  3. Can I get broadband without a phone line?
    An active phone line is still required for the vast majority of broadband services in the UK. Virgin Media is the only major UK provider able to offer broadband without a phone line. Or, if you just need the internet for email and occasionally visiting the odd website or checking social networking sites, you might want to consider mobile broadband. This is based on the mobile phone network, so doesn't require a landline.

  4. Should I cancel my current service?
    No - there's no need to cancel your current connection if you're switching from one Openreach-based provider (e.g. BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Plusnet, EE, Vodafone) to another. Plus, it's a lot easier to switch from one active broadband account to another. However, you should make a note to cancel any direct debits with your current provider once you have switched.

    The only exception is Virgin Media. If you're switching to or from Virgin Media, you'll need to contact your current provider to cancel your service once you've signed up to a new package.
  5. How do I get a new phone line?

    When you switch phone and broadband providers, or move to a new home, you may need to have a new phone line or cable installed. This can be arranged by your provider, with costs varying depending on the company you’re with and the package you’ve picked.

    Getting a new line installed is straightforward. When you sign up with a provider, they will tell you if you need a new line and arrange a time for an engineer to come and visit to do the work.

  6. Can I have a second phone line installed?

    Yes, it's possible to get a second phone line installed into a property. There are many reasons you might want to do this - getting a business-specific line, or splitting your property into flats or rented rooms, for example.

    The cost of fitting a second line will vary depending on who your provider is, and you may have to wait a few days until an engineer is available to do the work. Contact the provider for more information.
