Why It’s Time to Upgrade to Broadband Without a Landline

February 8, 2023

Using a laptop on the internet with no landline

Chances are, for many of us, you no longer use your home phone much at all, but are still paying for line rental alongside your broadband. If you’re ready to rid yourself of line rental expense, why not make the switch to broadband without a landline?

Broadband with no landline is the next generation of home internet. It allows you to enjoy smoother, faster connections with unlimited data, all without having to rely on an old copper cable.

Here’s everything you need to know about home broadband without a landline and why it’s time to upgrade. 

What is broadband without a landline?

Traditionally, you’ve always needed a physical phone line that was hooked up to your home to get broadband and connect to the internet. As technology has advanced in the UK over recent years this is quickly becoming obsolete, meaning you don’t actually need a line rental to get broadband.

And, if like many people, you tend to use your mobile to make calls and haven’t touched your house phone in years, there’s almost no need to have a landline. Now is the time to upgrade to broadband without a landline.

Broadband without a landline is as its name suggests. It’s simply home broadband without the cables. Broadband with no landline allows you to access the internet without having a home phone connection as part of your deal. 

How does broadband without a phone line work?

Essentially, broadband without a landline connects you to the internet in a similar way to mobile Wi-Fi, but for your entire home. So, how does it work exactly?

Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), also known as fixed wireless broadband, allows your home to connect to the internet without wires. It’s a type of high-speed internet that uses radio signals rather than cables.

It’s achieved when a connection is created between a mobile phone tower and the antennas within your broadband hub. The antenna receives a radio signal that is then converted into a Wi-Fi signal, allowing you to connect all your devices to a powerful Wi-Fi network without the need for a landline. 

What broadband without landline options are on offer with Three?

Depending on your area, we offer both 4G and 5G home broadband hubs without a landline.

Our 4G hub is perfect for everyday home broadband use, like browsing, scrolling, and sharing. You can connect up to 64 devices across your home without interruption. With truly unlimited data, you can work from home without the worry. Simply plug in and you’re good to go.

With our 5G home broadband you can connect to the UK’s fastest 5G network [1], according to Ookla®. That means streaming multiple 4K movies, razor sharp online gaming, and staying in touch through clear, uninterrupted video calls.

What are the benefits of broadband without a line rental?

Broadband without a landline allows you to stream your favourite Netflix shows or take work calls from the comfort of your own home. You can enjoy smoother, faster connections and high-quality streaming without the need for any fibre optic cables or landline.

Home broadband with no landline also allows multiple people and devices to use the internet without putting a strain on your connection. Additionally, there’s the benefit that the absence of a landline actually makes it possible to layer our Home Broadband on top of other providers without having to switch.

So, is it worth it?

Home broadband without a landline is a great alternative to fibre optic broadband. It’s also perfect for anyone who struggles to get fast connections in their area or doesn't use their landline anymore. 

Whether you’ve recently moved house and are without Wi-Fi, are a student living in shared housing, or a small business working from a temporary office, our broadband without a landline will help you get connected quickly and easily. 

Is broadband without a landline any cheaper?

If you no longer use your landline or are ready to ditch it, it may well work out cheaper to remove that unnecessary line rental fee. It doesn’t require installation either, meaning you won't have any hidden costs. You also have the added benefit of being able to take your broadband with no landline with you when moving home – as long as your new address is within coverage.
