That may not be the best topology, if they are getting a fixed line installed.  
TransACT hard-wire a splitter at the barge board and run a dedicated ADSL 
line from there to customer's chosen location.  There may be some advantage 
in minimising the length of voice grade cable, particularly for ADSL2+.

A corrollorary is that, if they are using a TransACT partner as ISP then no 
action required because the sub-contractor will run the ADSL line anyway.
