Having looked at this recently, the bottom lines seem to be:

1) You're going to have to pay ~£25 / month. 
   The £15 / £20 deals are generally for lower-speed broadband
   which is arguably not worth it.

2) In any case you need a standard (BT?) landline *as well* so the
   effective cost is higher. It's not as though you're just pitting 
   your current telephone bill against a £25/mo flat rate.

I'd love to be proved wrong -- I haven't managed to justify
the expense to myself for the occasional burst of speed I need.
