Is there a Broadband only offering from Virgin?

I'm not happy with my monthly Virgin Media bill. I could easily do without the TV service (to me, it's 95% of no interest). I make about 2 calls per month on average on my land line and almost all the calls I receive are either scams or unsolicited cold-call marketing. I have an inexpensive mobile service elsewhere. Broadband is important to me but I don't necessarily need 100 Mbps - perhaps half of that would do.

Is there an option with Virgin Media to take a broadband only service ? After all it's delivered over cable, so the old BT-supplied coper cable for my land-line is irrelevant.

If not, do others have recommendations on alternative broadband-only suppliers?

Yes you can do broadband only from Virgin Media - there one of the few companies that will do it and most of the others are the smaller fibre companies, not Openreach based.

It'll be the HUB3 or HUB4 depending on what cabinet you are connected to. 

If you add telephone, you get a small lead which plugs into the back of the HUB and gives you a normal phone socket. 

If you add TV, you get a TV box. 

Note however that although they offer broadband only, it's typically cheaper if you have telephone as well for both new customers and customers renegotiating their contract. That's why I have a telephone service that I'll never use - it was more expensive without it.

If you're an existing customer and drop other services, you'd keep the Hub you currently have - unless you then upgraded to a higher tier of Virgin Fibre service which meant you needed a new one.
