Would replacing my Plusnet 2704N ADSL router help prevent internet connection drops?

Just moved to rural Somerset in the UK where DSL bandwidth is around 5 Mbps down. I know I have to live with that but the daily dropped connections is getting old. I have to reboot the router at least once a day. John Lewis (Plusnet) provided the router and I know it's about as cheap as you can go. Would a better router make a difference? I have a smart Android TV and Win 10 NUC hard wired to it and have TV connection problems too. Any recommendations on a router?

It depends whether the router is the cause of the drops or a fault.
Might be a catch 22.
You can pick up a bt smart hub off auction sites for around £30 or less, might be worth investing in one of those.
