I’ve told Virgin that I do not require a landline but was told that it’s part of the package and if I do not have it my package price will be higher. I replied why ?. If I do not have a telephone you do not have to maintain it so less cost to Virgin I have not even got a physical telephone as I use a mobile. Example:- if I go into a restaurant and Steak , Egg , and Chips is £ 20 and I reply I don’t want the Steak they do not say it’s an EXTRA ! £10 without the steak !
Ive never heard of paying more for having less !! What nonsense is that ? .
ive never sat on a Virgin plane where they have charged you more if you do not eat the lunch that’s provided. Pure Greed ...
Virgin Media price their services based on how many you have with them. Bundles that include the phone service are priced more competitively that those without as Virgin Media would like customers to take all three cable services.
A a customer you can then make your choice about your services select based on the information on the pricing that's available.

As BenMcr said you get a higher discount for having 3 products. Which usually makes it cheaper to have 3 than 2.
VM will gamble that some, a significant number, will go on to use the landline and therefore spend more over the course of the contract. Of course you can just chose not to connect a landline and avoid this.
I’m sure they do want you to sign up for all 3 .Its completely out of order making people sign up for something they do not need. If you do not want a particular service why are you being charged more. I know exactly why they do it it’s in the hope you start running up large phone bills so really you are being coerced into having a service you do not want. It’s bang out of order I do not care what justification any one try’s to use. At the end of the day if you do not use something you should not be charged for it. That is pure greed.
