They are not saying they are going to get rid of landlines, just that they are getting rid of the old analogue tone dialed system.

You will be able to use a SIP phone for your landline and it will automatically have location data when calling 999.

Virgin Media already have a phone socket on the back of their 'Hub 3.0' router so you can use old phones as a SIP phone and so do Openreach FTTP modems.
