I use indra.com for $5/month although my ISP never goes down so I've
never used it.  I also pay Earthlink something like $10/month for when
I'm on the road, but I'm using that less and less.  I like indra,
because I can ssh into their boxes to test out DNS issues and such.

Indra and Earthlink work fine with my Linux laptop.  Simple ppp
