Moving broadband, phone and TV: how to do it when moving house

For many of us broadband is a utility as important as gas and electricity, so when you move home the question of transferring the service is a big one. Ideally you want to know that broadband will be setup the day you move into a new place, or at least avoid being left without access for weeks on end.
