Dialup ISP suggestions?

I have a very cheap account with an ISP who uses Level 3's modems.  In the 
past, they have been relatively reliable.   For those who still use dialup 
ISPs, what are your thoughts of Level 3 these days?

I may opt to switch from the ISP to World, who doesn't seem to use Level 
3.   What are people's thoughts of World?

My dialup needs are sparse - occassional connection to ssh and web 
browsing via bluetooth between my PDA and Verizon cell phone, using voice 
minutes, thus not paying Verizon for any data, and the ability to dial the 
ISP as long as I have some kind of signal.

I'm paying under $10/month, and that is good for my use.   I'm going to be 
sticking with verizon for another two years (just renewed) so GPRS is not 
an option.

The World is $20/month, which is more than I'd like to spend.  Despite the 
price, how reliable are they these days?

What other low-cost, reliable dialup ISPs are there with unlimited connect 
time, that don't use Level 3 modems?

I'd considered bringing in another line to create a homemade ISP, but the 
monthly charges are greater than $10/month, so it ain't worth it.
