What is 'line rental'?

When shopping around for broadband deals, it’s easy to be drawn in by an eye-catching ‘£5.99 a month’ deal. What these deals nearly never include is something called ‘line rental’.
Broadband, for the most part, needs a phone line to connect to the internet. BT owns the country’s phone line network, and charges other providers to use the lines. They then pass the cost onto consumers in the form of ‘line rental’.
