Moving House

We're moving house at the end of February and would like to have ADSL up and running before we actually move in but I'm not sure about how to go about this.

One of the ISPs I'm looking at (AAISP) doesn't do full phone line setup (only broadband-only) and so I guess I'd need to set up a line with BT first? Looking at BT's website, they do offer a moving house service but I'm guessing if I go that route the line will at best be up and running the day we move in and so I won't have time to get an ISP sorted as well. Does anybody have any advice?

Asking here because I'm sure if I phoned BT themselves I'd end up speaking to somebody in India who gives me the wrong information.

Thanks.

Most of the big or independent ISPs can do a new line setup / install for you, but the problem is that they will often also lock you into a longer term contract. So you might need to pick a provider that gives you both broadband + phone and then stick with it until the contract is up. Check out this article for some options:

Thanks for the advice. It's looking like I'll be going with Aquiss who will be able to set up a full phone line which is good considering I really don't want to have to deal with BT directly.

You will also avoid the huge mark-up BT places on the OE cost of a new line.
