When is BT planning on dropping line rental?

I seem to remember a thread about BT stopping charging line rental but can't find it.
Does anybody know when you will be able to get a BB line without line rental?

When you are pure Fibre you can dismiss the line (no copper required), still considering doing this and switching to pure VOIP which is something like £10 a month for unlimited calls, calls to the US, 200 odd minutes of mobile calls etc.  My only worry with that is, no phone if the internet is down.

I can't answer your question but they are/were offering free fibre broadband for a year, clearly they would not offer both together but your question made me wonder if an option was available free line rental or free fibre broadband.
Hope someone has a more positive answer.

No I think it is LATER, next year or so, I seem to remember something about not needing to have a phone line when all you want it broadband. I know at the mo the only way is FTTP but that is way to pricey and not available to everyone.
