Sweden's copyright and telecommunications reform party, officially known as the Pirate Party, is backing "a ISP called "PirateISP," which provides broadband Internet connections regulated according to party's politics: private, secure connections where no logs are retained, and no user data is available to Swedish Government."

ISP's first beta tests reportedly began in 100 rental properties owned by development group LKF in the city of Lund. ISP offers 10 Megabit, 100 Megabit or 1 Gigabit duplexed connections for prices between 243.75 SEK and 525 SEK per month (approximately $33-$70.) The group is also looking to start delivering Internet service in Helsingborg as a part of Open City Network there. PirateISP is accepting submissions to beta test their network as it grows, users can sign up. Or if you feel like sticking to Pirate Party philosophy, you can send them a PGP encrypted email with their public PGP key, found here.
