Still two weeks away from getting ADSL here so I can't say I've played with
it.  I've heard that BT apply several dirty tricks in an attempt to stop
you doing it but some ISPs are still managing to work around BT.

Think the guys you need to talk to are Andrews & Arnold.
http://www.aaisp.net.uk/  They can also offer a 2Mbps symmetric if you've
got 10K spare.

How do you calculate the contention ratio for four lines bonded together ?
More importantly I wonder how BT calculate it.
