Do I need a BT phone line for Virgin broadband
Virgin Media (www.virginmedia.com) is the only major provider in the UK able to offer broadband that doesn’t need a phone line.

Which is better BT or Virgin Broadband
Virgin is faster than BT because it uses a coaxial cable to connect up individual houses, which as a technology, is better at delivering fast speeds than the copper phone lines BT still uses to connect houses to it’s fibre broadband.
Does Sky Broadband use BT line
Tricky round to call this, as Sky uses BT’s network to deliver its broadband, which means the advertised download and upload speeds for BT and Sky Fibre are more or less exactly the same. But while Sky only offers average download speeds of 36Mb and 63Mb, BT also has a middle-tier package with average speeds of 50Mb.
Is Virgin Media the only cable provider
Currently there are just three players in the UK cable market; Virgin Media, Plusnet & BT. Virgin Media is the longest-running UK cable provider and offers the widest range of cable services and packages. BT joined the cable market in recent years with its fibre optic broadband service BT Infinity.
Can I get broadband without a phone line

Can I get internet without a phone line or cable
While many providers offer internet and TV bundles, standalone internet is a great option if you want home Wi-Fi, but don’t want to pay extra for TV and phone. You probably don’t need cable or phone service. So, if you want to cut the cable cord, don’t worry, you can still get internet without cable or a phone line.

Virgin Media Broadband review: Coverage
Virgin is able to offer faster speeds than most rivals because it operates its own fibre network. A few years ago, this was concentrated in major cities, but the company has been expanding aggressively and around 60% of the country can now get Virgin fibre services.
Is BT the best broadband provider
With BT Superfast Fibre, you get a BT Smart Hub (as you do with BT Business broadband packages) – genuinely one of the best routers you can get with a broadband package right now. It’s not nearly as impressive as the Smart Hub, but it’ll do just fine for ADSL, and it’s better than some that come with cheaper providers.
