Well, it's a hefty $39/month from Oz2000, but their server is very fast
(excellent for internet gaming) and I get to stay on for more than 6
hours, so there's absolutely no problem of being kicked out of the
network all of a sudden. I assume that Rivernet, which charges
$30/month (I think) for unlimited hours and downloads, would be unreliable
for someone looking for a fast connection.
Personally, I feel that ISPs that charge cheaper rates are less reliable
because just about everybody who wants bargain rates will flock to them
and end up overwhelming the server. The technology to maintain a large
number of people logging in to the net won't be around for some time...
