I'm very happy still with Plus Net.  I have a 2mb speed with sensible
usage.  The sensible usage is no problem at all, it really is sensible
not stupid.  As for modem or router...  If you have more than one PC
that you want to use the web for then go for a router.  Otherwise a
modem would be ok as long as it is not a USB one.  There are USB
modems that work with Linux but I'd still prefer an ethernet version. 
I use a D-Link 504 II modem router that I bought nearly new off eBay
for £20.  4 ethernet ports and works perfectly with any OS.

I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Take care.
