FWIW I can highly recommend Eclipse (http://www.eclipse.co.uk) - I have
been with them for coming up to 2 years now, and have had zero problems
Their technical support staff are great - on the 2 occasions I have had to
use it (both times it was BT's problem at the exchange end) I have found
the staff extremely helpful, polite and knowledgable - they didn't get
phased at all when I mentioned that I run Debian with many connections
behind my router.
The package is static IP, no ports blocked, no bandwidth limits with free
webspace/email etc. - all in all I am more than happy with them.
