I'm looking for a company that provides a landline without broadband. It's for my mother in law who is currently with BT and seems to be paying more for just a landline than other charge for landline and broadband combined. I've looked through the websites of likely companies but without success. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

The PO also do (or did) a phone only deal for about the same, but only BT are required to provide a phone only service, other providers don’t have to ,and generally don’t.
Depending upon your MiL's age (or health etc), there are "survival" tariffs available from BT that she may be eligible for. They are hard to find on the website and BT try to imply they are not available if the property had broadband ever before. OFCOM website says otherwise.
The other thing that you could investigate is the link below. I have no proper information on the link, it just came up as I was looking for a link for the BT vulnerable person landline only tariff (which I could not find). You will need to do your own due diligence about this company and their products / service.
If you don’t want or need broadband on your landline , then you possibly could reduce the price you pay, for example BT have ( or at least did ) have a line rental, calls and calling features package
As far as what is 80/20 broadband, FTTC comes in 3 download speeds , 40/55/80, depending on distance from the cab not everyone can get the maximum download , and the price generally increases in line with the tier ( slower tier cheaper than the faster tiers)
