    That would be fine provided everyone had an equal amount of shares.

    I typically pay about £30 (or just under) for Fibre Broadband, Phone (with unlimited free calls), and TV (not that I ever bother with that - it's just part of the package).

    Plus, of course, having a proper ISP means that you get to use proper eMail addesses, as opposed to having to rely on the Open Door Security, Freebie Spam Magnets, such as Hotmail, GMail & Yahoo, which are constantly getting blocked by ISPs because of the Security & Spam risks they pose.

    That's not a bad deal, though it depends on median income for the area.

    OK, but you're still paying the line rental on it, the only difference is that it's fibre rather than twisted pair.

    The justification is supposedly maintenance of the network which is provided by a different organization than the broadband supply.

    3GB data plus unlimited texts plus 500min calls would set me back £12. If that's not enough talking then unlimited data and texts plus 2000min calls would be £18.

    My Line Rental is £11 / month. I think it's normally £12.50, but by paying the yearly amount up front you get a discount.
