I'm moving into a new house and fortunately FTTP broadband is available in my are so planning to sign up for that. Since I keep my current home phone unplugged anyway to avoid the nuisance calls, I was going to opt for no land line thinking it'll be cheaper.
However when it came to ordering the broadband, I find that adding a land line has no effect on the quote monthly package price anyway.
So now wondering should I just add a land line even if I won't use it or is there some hidden cost I'm not aware of?
you cannot get broadband without a landline whether that is copper or fibre as you need the line for broadband. all you can do is opt out of having ability to make/receive calls
I see what you mean now, when I carried on with the order process it asked me whether I was already paying for a landline and they'll set me up with one if I wasn't.
Not sure I understand what you mean. From what I gather, FTTP does not use the BT master socket at all and is a direct cable inside the house?
Regardless, I do already have a telephone socket in the house so was just wondering if there was any downside to activating a land line even if I don't need it.
FTTP still requires a fibre 'line' to receive broadband similar principle to ADSL/FTTC requires a copper 'line' . you pay for the rental of the line.
there is no downside to getting the ability to make calls apart from the scam calls but you can always just connect phone is you want to make a call
