Is PlusNet still NOT taking orders for Phone Only ?

My old Mum, has no internet and doesnt want it either, she cant remember what day it is within 10 seconds of you telling her !!!!
My old Mum is currently with Madasafish !!
Madasafish is closing down !
Can she get "phone only" with Plus Net ?

Have a look at Pulse8: https://pulse8broadband.co.uk/line-packages
They don't do a call package, but with no connection fee and 1p/min for daytime calls it might be cheaper.

Thanks lad and lasses for your replies, i am amazed that Plus Net dont, wont or cannot cater for Phone Only customers, simply amazing.
As it happens, one of the Plus Net staff phoned me up and confirmed that Plus Net do not do business with Phone Only customers. absolutely Ludicrous
I certainly have a few alternatives to look at above, that i didnt know existed.

Especially as they're so keen to get broadband customers onto their phone packages and, with the recent increases, I'd expect that the telephone / line rental part of the business is pretty profitable.

Yeah i can see what you mean, they have lost my Mums business anyway.
I have now signed up with "PULSE8broadband" thanks to "spoon whittler" for the recommendation, that will be far cheaper for my Mums very limited outgoing calls.

What is worse PlusNet don't even to a multi line package !
I'm a current fibre customer (business line) and a Madasfish customer (on PL's recommendation) for my "Home" line. (2 lines one house) .... so i'm screwed by madasfish closing and PL seem to only want to sell me a second broadband connect ... why would i want that ?
Gross stupidity ....
