Hi. I'd like to know if it's possible to have wifi without having to install a phone line. Vodacom offered me this deal for a wifi router but will I need a line for that?

If it is possible to have wifi without a line then what is the best option to go for.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Yes it's SIM card based, some routers also have a USB port that you can plug a 3G dongle/modem in.

What I would do is get a ADSL router with 3G/4G failover in case you chose to get a line installed in the future.

Yes it is possible. You dont need to go with Vodacom though, search for a WISP (wireless internet service provider) in your area and see what they have to offer.

Can buy the same from Telkom (mobile data, LTE, no line) as what Vodacom is offering you for much cheaper generally, if you have coverage.

Yes there are quite a few options available now. Telkom, Vodacom, MTN and cell C, plus WISPs.

The choice is yours to make.

ADSL or VDSL with wireless failover.
