As Jim Reid has mentioned, all the ISPs can allocate Internet address
space.  However, for reasons of (currently) good net citizenship, and
(in the not too distant future) money, and connectivity, you should
choose a service provider first, and obtain address space from them.

See ripe-127, "Provider Independent vs Provider Aggregatable Address
Space",

for details.
