I have had excellent results with UUnet Sweden. I mainly get in touch with
them to tell them they have an AUP-violating customer; most ISPs here have
an "thou shalt not spam" part of their AUP, so even if the moron lobbyists
for the advertising industry managed to trick the government into an
opt-out spam law (which they did, but they haven't figured out who is to
run the opt-out list. Quite the farce.) nobody will be able to legally send
spam from them. Spam from swedish netblocks is thus mainly due to open
relays.
