Router suggestions (Fibre Extra)

Hi all i am new to this site and i am complete novice. I am looking for advise on buying a new router that will be easy to setup and that will give me better speeds for streaming ( Firestick 20mbps with vpn ) and a stronger wifi signal than i am getting with the plusnet hub one. I have fibre extra and i am getting around 70mbps download  and 17mbps upload. I have lots of devices on my wifi ( approx 20) i am willing to pay upto £150 for a new router so if anyone can give me some advise it would be much appreciated.Thanks in advance.

@DOC1 

The HubOne is a re-badged BT HH5. You can get a BT HH6 or the even newer SmartHub2 off eBay pretty cheaply. They work on PlusNet (there are instructions on how to set up elsewhere on this Forum). Just make sure you get the FTTC version and not the FTTP (which has a RED Lan port) if you go down this route.
