Get your list of ISP's from: <http://thelist.internet.com/areacode.html>
The strategy I use is:
1) Make sure the ISP uses Unix exclusively for networking services.
Ask the network administrator what they use.
2) The ideal ISP should offer Unix shell accounts.
3) Small ISP's are better in my experience.
You need to talk with the network Admin. not the
"help" (sales/teck weenies) except when it is a small
ISP where the owner frequently wears many hats.
