I agree that there are other providers who will not dictate that you take their line rental package, however the actual cost of their fibre packages are quite high. I looked at Plusnet, ADSL24 Zen and Vivaciti and as Plusnet only quote the 40mb line speed and similar download limits, I used that as a benchmanrk:
Plusnet: £21.49 pm plus £50 activation fee (actually the same speed was quoted for both packages!)
ADSL24: £27.90 pm
Zen: £27.60 pm
BT Infinity 1: £18 pm plus £25 activation fee (half price for 3 months and a £25 Sainsbury's voucher)
Its a similar story on the higher speed products as well. Add to that, with BT you get BT Openzone thrown in, then it seems to make sense to go with them.
Or then there is Virgin 'up to 60mb' on its own (no phone line) for £27.50 pm (half price for 3 months)
Or am I missing something?
