I am so tired of having to pay for a phone line rental ie landline numberl   that I or nobody uses
That I am forced to buy with my broadband service (yes on Virgin you can have without but at no cost saving ) I can't be alone Inow finding it a rip off to have this 

Idea
giffgaff hook up with a broadband supplier and offer home broadband at a competitive rate with no land line  phone line rental  lock in.
As markets expand giffgaff need  to have another arrow to its bow
This could be a winner
If this  idea floas your boat add a comment

(Sorry should be in contribute)

And how would you deliver the data to your house? I hate it but somebody has to pay for the past investment in infrastructure. Also, whee would the investment for the future come from? I hate it but I fear that the model is not yet there for us to get rid of the landline. Smiley Sad

Unfortunately you'd still need BT Openreach's infrastructure to use their landline to your door to get your broadband.

Why would a broadband supplier want to work with giffgaff? In exchange for mobile internet? I am not sure they would like the speeds!

Land lines are a bit of a rip off when u only use it for internet surely someone could reduce the rental for this?
