International ISPs that dont need IOUs

I'm a travelling writer and I've been looking for an ISP that will allow me international access without costing an arm and a leg.

Of the big corps, AOL charges a £6 an hour surcharge on top of souped up local tariffs (+ monthly fee) in the country I want to go to. Smaller companies like dialer.net look better but their dial up service is very slow and their broadband costs 25 cents a minute - which at $15 an hour works out close to the AOL standard.

Does anyone have any ideas for affordable international access?

I'm not looking for a cheap or free ISP so much as one ISP that allows me international access whichever country I am in. I'm traveling to Israel, Canada and the UK in the course of writing and I dont want to change my e-address every month or two. The problem I'm finding is that all the smaller companies seem to offer similar deals to AOL in terms of price. Any suggestions on this topic gratefully received
