Before we assume anything, have you checked you can get FTTC and what is the estimate? The best checker is the BT Wholesale
I would say your choice is between PlusNet and Sky. Sky has the drawback of making your phone line LLU which can make leaving a little more complicated. But I believe not as bad as it used to be. The alternatives are BT and TalkTalk.
I first had FTTC with IDNet, before Plusnet had it available. After the twelve month term I decided that is was too expensive. I couldn't make my mind up between BT and Plusnet but a conversation with sales at both soon made my mind up. BT were clueless and condescending, not believing even at supervisor level that I was on FTTC somewhere else. "Only from BT", anyone? Even their own staff were not briefed that Infinity may be, but that is just their product.
I upgraded from 40/10 with an allowance like yours to 80/20 unlimited eleven months into my 18-month term I was so confident about Plusnet.
The 582n router I find dodgy for wireless - I think that's all that gets to most people until we get to sophisticated stuff. I replaced it a few weeks ago with an ASUS RT-N66U and can't fault that so far.
I hope that helps.
