Any good free (or cheap) ISPs, e-mail, etc.?

I am going to drop my hi-speed internet, as it is just too expensive...

We are paying ~120 dollars a month as a bundle (saves some money,) for:
Cable modem rental (I should have bought it from them 2 years ago...)
Cable internet
Cable - Digital basic, TVR) - We were almost paying as much for the phone and cable internet...
Cable Phone

At most, we are going to keep the Phone service (about 30 a month) until I switch it over to something better.

I would like to still be able to use the internet at home, although I think I only have a 33.6 modem. Are there any free or cheap broadband services available? Do any of the web accelerators work that well, if I have to use dial-up?

What is the best free email service to get, if I have to go to the library to check it, and to post at DVD Talk?

Have you tried contacting your cable company about deals? I get cable modem, digital plus with all the movie channels for under $100. Maybe switch to VOIP and save on your phone bill, or just cancel landline all together if you have sufficient cellular capacity.
