    Were they listed as a creditor on your bankruptcy form? If not, and they havent done a credit check on you since BR, I dont think they will be aware of your bankruptcy. If the debt was before your bankruptcy, it is now written off. If it is after the date of your bankruptcy you are still liable.

    In your situation Im not sure what to advise to be honest! You could always keep quiet, pay the 40 and hope no one says anything however that is down to you and morally I wouldnt say its the right thing to do. However informing them of the bankruptcy may well ruin your chances to take out a broadband contract with them.
