Thanks for all the feedback

Price definitely isn't the main concern for me

Productivity is a higher concern than speed or price: another couple of
things I should have asked about:

- is there any ISP that insists on their own router?  I want to use a
Turris Omnia (OpenWRT), it can work with DSL modems in bridge mode as
long as I have the credentials

- do any of the ISPs (or just some of their plans) block incoming
connections to services like IPsec or SSH?
