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

So you need a new phone line?

Every home needs a phone line, whether for chin-wagging with loved ones or just for broadband, but what if your property doesn’t have one? Here, we’ll explain the basics of getting a new phone line, and how to save money with cheap calls and line rental when you compare landline deals on our site…

Video guide: Phone line and broadband deals

Getting a new phone line

If you’re moving house, you’ll want to get your phone line up and running as quickly as possible, so you’re not left without broadband and home phone calls. These days, getting a new phone line’s normally a simple and hassle-free process. First, compare deals available in your area then choose a package that ticks all the boxes. Sign up and your provider will take care of everything else. Here’s how it usually goes:

Step 1: Compare deals

There are lots of providers and packages to choose from, but some areas have more choice than others. This is why we use your postcode to only show the deals you can actually get at your address.

Step 2: Sign up

Once you’ve found a package you like, you can sign up with your new phone provider online. Bear in mind, you’ll usually get better value for money if you bundle your phone and broadband together.

Step 3: Get connected

You won’t always need a visit from an engineer. If you’ve already got a phone line, but it’s not active, it can usually be reconnected in a matter of days - sometimes at no extra cost.

Bundling your phone line with broadband

If you’re getting a new phone line and also want broadband, it’s almost always cheaper to bundle them together. As long you’ve completed the minimum term on any existing contacts, you can order your phone line with broadband from a single provider that offers both. If you also watch a lot of telly, you can save even more money with a broadband, phone and TV bundle from BT, Sky, TalkTalk or Virgin Media.

Broadband without a phone line

If you’re tired of paying line rental for a landline phone that rarely gets used, then you might be considering broadband without a phone line. Sounds great, doesn’t it? In reality, though, in the majority of cases, you’ll need a working phone line to get broadband. The only major exception is Virgin Media, which operates independently of the national telephone networkonce owned and still maintained by BT.


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  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. Can I keep my phone number when switching?

    Whether you can keep your number or not when changing providers depends on a number of factors. If you’re staying in the same property, then providers will usually allow you to keep using your number when you switch. In some cases your new provider may not accept the new number - contact your provider to find out their reasons if this happens.

    If you’re moving properties, you may be able to keep your number - so long as you’re within the local telephone exchange area. If you move out of this area, you won’t be able to keep your number and will have to get a new one.

  5. How long will it take for a new line to be fitted?

    If you’re having a new line installed, you may have to wait a few days for the work to be done. How long is dependent on provider and engineer availability - it could be a week or it could be as much as 15 days. Your provider should be able to give you an idea of how long it will take.

    If your home already has an active phone line, you will be up and running much faster. However, you might still have to wait a couple of days in some cases.

  6. How much will a new line cost?

    Most providers charge for fitting a new line and the cost varies from provider to provider. Some will do it for free, when switching to a new phone or broadband package. Your provider will let you know how much they charge during the sign up process.
