Can I cancel phone line but keep broadband

Basically at the moment I have 70Mb broadband and a phone line, I want to cancel the phone line and move it to a voip service (due to extortionate line rental charges). my question is do virgin media allow customers to only have a broadband service?

thanks

Rob

Re: Can I cancel phone line but keep broadband

Yes, you can have broadband only but ......

1. If you are still in your contract minimum period, you will have penalties to pay to cancel your landline;

2. You will likely save very little monthly when you cancel the landline, certainly no where near the nominal landline price;

3. You will probably be unable to keep your 70Mb and have to choose one of the current speeds, either 50Mb or 100Mb.

Re: Can I cancel phone line but keep broadband

Thanks, your answers are what I thought, though the line rental is shown as a separate item so surely I should be saving that amount, I'm currently paying 60.00 for 70MB and a landline plus the usual call bundle charges, given that my voip connection is going to cost me 2.00 per month there should be some savings.
