Can you do your downloading overnight, keeping the daytime fairly clear?

"Quite a bit" is a pretty useless specification. That could mean 30GB, 100GB, 500GB, or 2TB, depending on individual attitudes. Or anything in between or more or less. Also, the more "unlimited" the ISP's allowance you get, the higher the possibility of congestion messing up latency.

Blame Talk Talk and sky for that, they tell people they get unlimited for peanuts, which they may do, but then they block, slow down torrents and got a naff customer service.

Thank god the smaller providers don't have to block torrent sites. First the big players get all the business then they become targeted for their own sucsess and start blocking torrent sites.

Look at the FTTC Comparison Matrix linked in the post
Link to FTTC Matrix post.

If you are downloading 100Gb a month then Sky or BT Infinity Option 2 are probably the better value ones.

Also depends on your use of p2p and of upload. If you use p2p a lot, BT (for who I have just opted) appear to be useless. If you want higher upload speeds, Sky will charge £30 per month, if they offer the service at all (they don't for me). My BT upload speed should be 19Mb, Sky could not offer better than 2Mb here.
