    Plusnet Full Fibre is a broadband only package, so you don't need a phone line. This means you can save on line rental.

    What this means if you’re a Plusnet broadband customer

    When you upgrade your package to Full Fibre you'll need to confirm that you’re happy to lose your landline.

    We'll then take care of everything and disconnect your home phone as part of your Full Fibre installation.

    It’s important to know that losing your landline will mean any medical services or alarms connected to your phone will also stop working. This includes medical pendants and fall alarms.

    We’d advise speaking to your supplier or manufacturer about these before choosing a Full Fibre package.

    Want to keep your landline? No problem, you can choose a great renewal or upgrade deal on our broadband and faster fibre packages which use a phone line.

    What this means for new customers

    When you sign up you'll just need to let us know what you want to do with your phone line:

    • If you don't want to keep it we'll take care of everything and disconnect your phone when you switch to us. This will means you'll lose your landline number and any medical services or personal alarms connected to your phone will also stop working. We’d advise speaking to your supplier or manufacturer about these before choosing a Full Fibre package.
    • If you want to keep your home phone line you'll need to arrange this with your current landline provider. Your phone service will be completely separate from your Plusnet Full Fibre package.
