Cheap and rude, and MIT too

FlexNet is an Internet Service Provider in Hawaii. Their prices are extremely good, because, as they write on their home page, "we don't have a tech support staff, so you have to know what you are doing. When you do sign up, you will just get a USERNAME, PASSWORD and MODEM PHONE NUMBER. Nothing else. You will have to know how to put this information into your computer. If you never did this before, most likely you won't be able to figure it out. Go Sign Up with another ISP, Flexnet is NOT for you..."

Cheap and rude, but least they know their target market.

Another organization that's on the ball: the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which will be making almost all of its course materials available for free online. Way to go, MIT.
