ISP support for Linux

Which ISPs in the UK support Linux via dial up at local phone call rates?
Recommendations please?
Thank you.

Check what protocol the ISP you want uses, and configure Linux to use it. Some ISP's have their own protocol (like NetZero) that might give you a hard time.

BT works fine. Anything where you just use the default windows dialer+the info they give (no AOL dialer crap).
Kppp is a very nice linux dialer app, you simply enter the account data and away you go
(After maybe installing modem drivers)
