I was with Nildram from around Jan 2003 to last month - technically very 
good, although their accounts dept can be a bast to deal with at times - I 
finally received my June and July invoices about three weeks ago :P  Note 
that Demon have just launched a 20-quid a month 512k deal with no usage caps 
and (I think) static IP.

Duty binds me to recommend my current ISP, who are also my employer! 
Lumison - http://www.lumison.net/ - are not the cheapest, but are very 
stable and we have a lovely shiny new datacentre to boot (where I'm sitting 
right now!).
