Broadband advice wanted

I am completely fed up with Talk Talk. (Who isn't?) But i'm uncertain how broadband really works, so would appreciate some guidance.
If I switch, do i have to go without internet access for a time? If so how long?
On their basic package we're getting 5.2 mbps down and less than 1 up. I'm not an expert on speeds at all but to me this is painfully slow. Even dialup would scoff at this. What can I reasonably expect rom a basic package does anyone know? TT claims 7 is about average (which is what it was a couple of weeks ago after they sent us a new router following me complaining). They say if I want more I gotta pony up more. I'm not encouraged to do so, but can I expect better from anyone else? I don't need the worlds best service. We do have the means in terms of the infrastructure.
