Have been forced to migrate my landline - like everyone else. Booked the "emergency backup line" as we have no mobile signal at home. What does it turn out to be - a mobile phone! What a waste of time. What actual emergency backup solution can Virgin offer me? I can't be the only one in this position.

Bottom line, none whatsoever!
But think about it, VM like all other providers are being driven/ instructed by an OFCOM directive to phase out all ‘phone line’ connections within the next few years. The only possible emergency provision is via some kind of cellular connection. There really is no alternative and VM can’t do anything about it.
