Pass on the ISP - I have been with Pipex for ages, was bought by 
Tiscalli, now CarPhone Warehouse. So I will probably have to move soon. 
But it is a reliable service, < 8mbp/s static IP and 30GB/month for 
about £15/m.

We use Bytemark (www.bytemark.co.uk) and have been happy with them 
to-date. You can choose what image you run on your VMs (VPSs) including 
Ubuntu. They only do Linux and you get full root/ssh access + a serial 
port access for when things go fsck and you need to reboot.
