why you'd get the bill for this.

You get a bill because BT bill the ISP who then passes it in to you.

There has always been an activation fee for ADSL - this is just a bit more for FTTC/FTTP installs.

Some ISPs hide the BT activation fee by charging you a fraction more and locking you into a 1 (or more) year contract.

If you bought ADSL from me, I'd charge you the Â45 fee plus VAT for the install (plus any hardware on-top of that - modem/router, etc.), but only give you a 1-month contract.
