I've responded on the odd occasion these last few months to similar requests in this forum.  Do a Forum search for terms such as Wanadoo, Tele2 and Free and you'll find all sorts of recent discussions.

Personally, I've just cancelled a Tele2 subscription for the same reasons you quote.  The latency in their network made it unusable.

The bottom line is that the ISP performance really depends upon where you live and how they route your particular POP for your commune onto the backbone.  This varies enormously from commune to commune so one person's good/bad experience is not necessarily indicative for you.  You should do some research on www.grenouille.com - a really excellent site if you have the head for the statistics they present.
