Do I need a landline for Telus internet?

Hi,

 

This may be a silly question, but I'd like to confirm.  I've had a landline for a long time and I'm thinking of giving it up.  I think at one point it may have been necessary to have a landline to have Telus internet.  Maybe this was back in the A/DSL days (or maybe I was misinformed).  Now I'm on fibre.  Do I need a landline in anyway to support home internet or could I ditch the landline if I choose?

 

Thank you 🙂

You should be able to ditch your landline. We switched our phone service to VOIP Ooma a few years ago. We just connect the Ooma box to a ethernet connection on the modem. They do have a wireless Ooma box as well. We get Optik TV and internet from Telus but no landline.
