    Do you have broadband? If so, with who and how is it delivered?

    These days, a landline it typically used to deliver calls and internet (broadband)

    Calls are easy - cancel the landline and use a mobile phone - a lot of contracts have unlimited minutes.

    Internet is more tricky. It depends what you use it for. You can get data on the mobile phone and use it there, and even use that data on your laptop by connecting your laptop to the phone. You will have to analyse your internet usage and see if you can live without a landline.

    I have not had a landline for about 12 years now. I use my mobile phone for all calls, texting and internet access.

    We have Fibre to the cabinet(also from BT) and the last bit comes via traditional wire. We therefore need the telephone line until we have FTTC. We have cancelled the call package and use our mobiles for calls.

    That is delivered over what you call the landline and you pay rental charges .So you do use your landline even if you dont phone .

    I never use my landline and would like to cancel it. What are the pros and cons of not having a landline?
    Pro is you remove the cost, con is that you may lose your BB if its delivered over the phoneline and there can be exit fees if you are still within a minimum contract period plus telling anyone you gave the number to that it doesnt exist any more.

    BT do now offer a Broadband only option even if that physically uses the phoneline for part of it; not sure if others that use the Openreach infrastructure have similar options or if it locks you into the one provider going forward.
