Another vote for Virgin Media here - I steer clear of ADSL, as from
experience it's rather fragile (not surprising, trying to send high
speed data signals over shite quality twisted copper pair) - although
BT Infinity may solve that problem by replacing the majority of the run
with fibre up to the local cabinet - but if the copper pair from the
cabinet to your house (or your internal wiring) is shite, it might
still suffer).

With VM, you know you'll get a new, decent quality cable that's up to
the job installed; in my experience, their service is pretty damn
solid, and generally gives me the speed advertised.

I have a RIPE Atlas probe installed locally, and the remote
reachability stats for the month (connection uptime) are typically 98%
or better.

I'd echo the recommendations to put the "Super"Hub in modem mode and
use a proper wifi access point & router, though - it wasn't so super in
my experience.
