Are any ISP's offering FTTC migrations yet?

also since most companies will make you to take a phone line along with fibre wont the phone line come with at least a 12 month contract making this a bit useless?

Most maybe but by no means all. One, for example, being PlusNet where FTTC with the phone line with another supplier costs, I think, an additional £2.50pm.

Correct re Plusnet, but you also have to pay a setup charge of £50 if you don't take the phone, and all the multi-month discount deals (and I think cashback sites) only apply to the bundles.

I think many outside BT/Plusnet/Sky/TalkTalk aren't bothered. Zen for example. I think charge £4.50 more, and when I went to IDNet I kept my phone with BT.

Specifically for the OP, I was on FTTC for a year with IDNet from February 2011, and migrated to Plusnet FTTC in February 2012. Amusingly I also contacted BT when I decided to leave IDNet, and they refused to believe I was on FTTC if I wasn't with them. Treated me as though I was an idiot and told me I must be on Virgin Media or not on a fibre connection at all. Even after the sales guy had been to chat with his supervisor at least twice and in the end transferred me to him.
