Braodband service

I have for the last 8 years received the above from BT but lately I am not having good vibes from them in that I am still paying over the odds to what new customers are getting after their promotional freebie plus I fell foul of a email bug! I was wondering and here I am appealing to the more enlightened technos amongest you as to who is offering the best deal/service at present. Taking into consideration I live 60 miles southwest of Glasgow on the Ayrshire coast with no cable but I do have Sky. I browse a bit but do not download music to any amount and have two email accounts running from it.
All reasonable suggestions welcome as I do think I am not getting value for money.
Thanks in advance.
