Anyone have an internet connection preference?

I'm researching getting a new system (probably a laptop, but maybe not), and have decided to use Opera as the browser when I get it. However,
What, in your opinion, would be the most practical internet service to use with Opera? I've had my fill of Aol, and am leary of any that "provide" their own browser. I read Mike's suggestion about getting rid of IE a while back, but don't remember there being a suggested connection service to use.
Anyone have a preference?

There are many ISP's to choose from, it really depends on which country you are in. As for browsers, I dislike IE because of the immense range of vulnabilities it is prone to, I use Opera occasionally, but now use Firefox as my browser of preference as it hassle free - actually, there is no reason not to have more than 1 browser installed.
Hope this is of some help.

If it's available in your area, go with Speakeasy DSL. Fast, reliable speeds and they remember that the customer is the one paying their salaries and paying for their equipment. A lot of ISPs forget that fact.

I use SBC myself along with a router to maintain my PPPoE connection. You won't even have to install anything off their CD; you just need your username and password. Insert that into the router, and you're off and running with a permanent conenction.
