I'd go with any cheap, local, *ISP* (internet service provider).  Note: not an OSP (on-line service provider) such as AOL, Prodigy, MSN, etc.  These don't really give you a connection to the internet, but an account on *their* network, using *their* clients.  Sure you'd be able to surf the web using proxy servers thru their windows clients, but i've never seen an OSP clietn for linux.

If you get a true ISP, you'll end up with your own IP number everytime you log on.  Question this first.
