What is the true cost of having the phone as part of VIP package?

Can anyone help with the following?

What is the true cost of having the home phone as part of your VIP package? The billing from Virgin is a little complicated for me to know what I'm really paying. Before I make a phone call each month am I paying:

£13.90 Line rental
+£8.00 Talk unlimited
+£1.75 Talk mobile
+£1.75 Talk international
=£25.40

I'm sure some discount will be involved when the service is part of the VIP package however I'm not 100% sure what I'm actually paying in terms of my phone service when it makes up part of the overall VIP deal.

Any help or info would be great. I don't actually use the home phone too often and I'm a little concerned I'm not getting value for money.

It's a simple fact that the VIP bundles INCLUDE phone. You cannot be a VIP customer without phone.

You can, assuming you are outwith a minimum contract period, negotiaite with Virgin Media for a bundle which only contains TV and BB.

Well VIP is £87.56 + £13.90 line rental making it £101.46 in total.

TV XL £30.50
BB XL £35.00
Additional Box £6.50
Sky Collection £29.50
Sky Premium HD £7.00
TiVo £3.00

Total £111.50

So the cost of having unlimited landline calls and cheaper mobile and international calls is -£10.04

Pretty good going .

Without a phone line, according to the bundle builder you can get everything else in VIP20 for £101.00, or VIP50 for £107.50.
If you want Tivo then it's £3 on top of them.

So, your phone line isn't costing you anything, it's saving you money.
