Lists of Internet Access Provider Lists

Internet Access Providers Meta-List
My personal favorite. Although inconsistently edited, it is absolutely the most superbly perfect list of its type on this web site.

The following usenet newsgroups may be useful in your search. They probably won't tell you about providers not found in the various web pages, but newsgroup discussions are likely to have opinions (subjective and biased, but often useful) on the quality of providers.

You may also want to ask questions on a local or regional discussion group. Some local newsgroups of particular interest are:

Newsgroup aus.net.access
Newsgroup de.comm.internet
Newsgroup fr.reseaux.internet.fournisseurs
Newsgroup ne.internet.services
Newsgroup ns.online
Newsgroup nz.netstatus
Newsgroup uk.net
Newsgroup uk.telecom

(I don't read these regional newsgroups. if any groups listed go away or aren't useful, or if you know of other useful groups.)

When you post in a newsgroup you should mention that you have already looked though lists of providers on the web, otherwise you will get followups and replies suggesting web pages you have already searched (including one from me if I see your post).
