Plusnet Fibre without line rental

Hi
Just been thinking about this and I'm not sure if I've made a mistake by ordering Vonage(VOIP) for an alternative to my current line rental with The Post Office. I was just comparing line rental charges to see if I could find anything cheaper and find Vonage amongst the results and ordered....
Now, I've gone to stop payments with The Post Office line rental and wondering if I will have problems with losing the fibre connection as I think Plusnet required a land line for the fibre broadband... I  may be wrong but wanted to check with anyone at Plusnet support if there will be problems?
Thanks for any input.

Re: Plusnet Fibre without line rental

you likely will hit problems, you'll need to be paying line rental to someone.

you will need to have and keep a Plusnet or BT telephone line for the duration of the service. An engineer installation visit will be required where no working fibre installation already exists. The provision of Plusnet Fibre is subject to availability and a line check. The service may be incompatible with other services you have.

Re: Plusnet Fibre without line rental

For clarification, that means a Plusnet phone line or any other supplier who offers a BT Wholesale based line.
