When I went from 640k/256k the best I could get was 640k/640k (and a 
high price) because 1Mb/768k wouldn't work. I am now at 1.5M/1M and a 
cheaper price to boot! I am using pair for my web and e-mail hosting 
(and pairNIC as my DNS server). pairNIC is a good way to go because you 
have full control of your DNS. no-isp.com is also good if you want to 
run your own mail server as they have a backup MX service and support 
dynamic DNS.
