      EE currently have an offer (until 16/10) on up to 38Mb/s for 26 / month on an 18 month contract with 100 cashback on a prepaid mastercard. Should be possible to save more if you are able to pay up front line rental. Setup fee is 62 where a new line is required. As you already have a BT compatible line there may be problems ordering this deal online, which is in partnership with broadbandchoices but there is an online chat facility where you could explain your problem.

      You could just buy some ethernet cable and a crimping tool, an run it through loft areas to get internet to the front of your house. You could probably pay an electrician to do it for you. It would be cheaper DIY, but even the one off cost would be cheaper in long term than paying for 2 internet services.
