I was considering swcp before, but decided against it since their web site 
says they do not offer an unlimited access account. Which I desparately need, 
because I'd hate to find out just how much time I really spend online. :P 
(And then how much I'd have to pay for it...)

I'm considering Thuntek.net, as Brian Gonzalez suggested. They have unlimited 
dialup access plus 10MB web space, and a shell account for $20. I emailed 
them a small question about their AUP, but I don't think there will be any
