Front Range Internet -- www.frii.com

Good service, good prices on DSL via Qwest transport (so you can stay far
away from MSN... heh), address issues quickly, and friendly folks.

Clueful about shells too, require a photo ID before a shell account is
granted, which I found amazing in today's "we'll take anyone as long as they
pay us" environment.  Shell's on BSD I think, however...(been a long time
since I used it) so if you needed a true Linux shell... ?
