I still suspect your phone line, does it still crackle? If so that's a sure sign there is a problem although usually crackles will cause your dial-up to drop out frequently as well as run slow.
Do a search for an "Internet speed test" on google for UK sites and see what kind of speed you're realy getting.
Not trying to disparage the good people at BT but if they run the same way as Telstra here in OZ the formula for fixing line complaints is as follows:
1. receive complaint about line quality.
2. wait 24 Hrs.
3. ring customer back and tell him/her the line has been checked and is fine.
4. If not heard from again take no further action.
