As per what MrSaffron says. Plus:-
How important is it to have the phone and broadband with the same company. It may compromise one or the other service.
Accepting your phone choice as a given, it might be worth looking at the broadband packages ADSL24 can offer you on the TalkTalk Wholesale service, and perhaps also vivaciti.
The reason I say this is that the TalkTalk Wholesale service I believe sets a fairly high sync-time noise margin. Higher than you are on now. (If that is gobble-de-gook, I'll explain later, and/or you can read this page
). This would lower your maximum possible speed.
I think both ADSL24 and vivaciti, as technologically with-it ISPs, are able to get it lowered to standard values such as you are on at the moment. You would need to check with them. They also have the O2/Be Wholesale network available to them at that exchange.
However, the O2/Be network doesn't seem to be quite what it was at the moment. TalkTalk Wholesale may be the better of the two for you at this point in time.
My recommendation therefore is to put your phone with The Phone Co-op, and look into those alternatives for the broadband.
Good luck with the house transactions.
