Ummm, not a good exchange for alternatives.
In your case I wouldn't recommend TalkTalk, more later on that.
I am just asking for opinions on ISPs who are known for reliability. I don't mind paying for a good service, but if everything rests with BT any provider may give the same result if the fault is with them.
That's why I wanted to know the ISP, as explained earlier. If it is highly unusual for them we need to try and find why it is happening and if there is anything under your control affecting it. From what you said previously then the ones that spring to mind are, (alphabetically), AAISP, IDNet and Zen. If it isn't one of those then look at them. For 2-4GB per month you may well find AAISP hits the button.
Note that on that exchange AAISP and IDNet have different/worse prices for the ADSL which is all you can get at the moment and ADSL2+ which is scheduled for March. (WBC 21CN).
Otherwise you could consider one of the resellers that connect using the TalkTalk ADSL2+ equipment at that exchange. Some then use the Opal backhaul I think, others do not. Vivaciti, ADSL24 and Aquiss are the ones that come to mind, though best to call them as it can be difficult seeing which of their packages are on the TalkTalk kit and what happens behind it.
