    When you say a landline package with BT, is that for phone and broadband, or is your current upto 17Mb broadband with someone other than BT ?
    TT do require you to have line rental with them if you want TT any sort of broadband, so as already stated, best not to assume but check if you are outside of the minimum term for line rental and broadband with whoever currently provides them

    When TT first started offering broadband it was 'line share' so your line rental was with whoever, and TT supplied broadband, when TT started offering full unbundled lines (MPF) new TT customers had to take TT line rental, but old legacy customers ( presumably you have had TT broadband for a long time) were offered the option to say as shared (SMPF) or move to MPF , presumably way back then they offered to move you onto TT phone network but you decided to stay with BT for line rental
    If you move to TT for line rental now and your current number is important to you, best to check they will port to number into TT phone network, otherwise you could end up with another phone number.
    You haven't really been paying two lots of line rental, you were paying BT for line rental and TT for just 'broadband', it's just TT charge legacy broadband only customers more per month for just broadband than TT MPF customers pay for broadband and LR combined, ...this is to 'convince' them to move to TT for line rental too, because when TT have no SMPF customers left , they can retire the SMPF equipment in the exchange and that saves them £££
