Which ISP for Linux in the UK??


I im intending to install LYCORIS LINUX onto my computer, and hope one day to use this as the exclusive Operating System.
I currently use AOL as my unlimited access ISP, I know that AOL will not work with Lycoris.
What ISP will be the best to use in the U.K.?
I would prefer another unmetered access ISP at up to 15 per month.
Any ideas?
Thanks for your help.
Mike

Just about anyone but AOL should work for you. BTs unmetered access or NTL/BlueYonder dialup seem quite popular.

cheers

Jamie,
Thank you very much.
My sister is with Tiscali (on Windows) which she likes. Would Tiscali be ok too do you know?
Cheers,
Mike

Any ISP that uses the normaly dial-up adaptor under Windows should work find under linux too, the only problem on I've heard of is AOL as they still tend to do things their own way a little. Thats not to say you couldn't get it working but it could be a challenge!
