I don't know of any that don't.

Unless by "support" you mean that their customer services staff will know
what linux is.

But AFAIK, all of them allow connections using a router. And if they do
that, the linux will work just fine.

You just need to make sure your ADSL or cable modem has
ethernet output, and then you can fit standard ethernet
cards to your PC and standard
equipment like VoIP phones without any problems.

The USB ADSL modems are now beginning to get drivers,
but you miss out on VoIP and lose general purpose
connectivity, so insist on ethernet modems / pay the extra for it.

Metronet know about Linux, use it themselves and will support linux users
on connection matters. Usual disclaimer.

The message
from "gram" contains these words:

Zetnet run their servers on Debian, and you can connect with whatever
software you like.

Really, the answer to your question is 'All of them', but have a look at
www.zetnet.com - they'll provide (at a price) a pre-configured modem
router if you want one.

Otherwise, they're quite happy for you to use your own hardware.
