Re: Have virgin contacted my previous provider?

Yes, although it's possible to have a copper pair for VDSL broadband without a telephone service provided on the line. There's no need for broadband over copper pair to imply telephone line.

My point is simply that landline telephone lines are becoming increasingly irrelevant.

For decades it's been a requirement to have a working phone line to get DSL broadband, and it's still needed in the majority of cases. So, I think that most people certainly consider broadband over copper pair to imply a telephone line.

Re: Have virgin contacted my previous provider?

I am a BT to VM customer..... I got a text from BT after signing up for VM services. (I wanted to bring over my number)

I called to check this was right and VM had informed BT and their is nothing I need to do.

Re: Have virgin contacted my previous provider?

yes but only if you port the number. VM didn't cancel your bt account. BT cancelled it when the number was ported.
If you didn't take you number you would still have both accounts active and have to cancel BT yourself
