We live out in the boonies of central NY and only have access to dial-up. I recently switched providers so I could use my laptop when I travel. I know Ads are taboo but localnet has dialup numbers all over the country and costs $9.95 a month. I was in DC recently and got a great connection. I travel around a bit for my job and it's nice to be able to get online without paying the hotels outrageous fees.

Still with AOL, $23.90, unlimited. We're used to it, and have a couple of business cards with email addresses on them. I recently got 1000 cards for my photography business, and wouldn't like to discard them.

AT&T $14.95 unlimited. Very good service compared the alternatives in the boonies. It takes a dive about once a year but not ever over a couple of hours.

Tried Juno years ago but where I live Juno keeps disconnecting just about the time you get online. Then will not reconnect for at least several minutes, but most times it would not rehook for several hours later.

local phone company, 19.95 a month unlimited. No long distance charges. No other options here unless you count earthlink which is too intrusive to suit me. BTW RW I lost your e-mail address, if you have mine you could send it to me if you would, Have not seen much of Centaur Nut lately, hope he is ok.

We have basic Juno for $9.95 per month have been very pleased. My son wants us to get the High-speed Juno for 14.95 per month, but I don't see any need for it. We used a local ISP is was 12.95, then 14.95 and finally 18.95 when we changed over to juno.

I think I may be the looser for this: $25 unlimited. There is one other local isp available that is a bit cheaper.

Local ISP @ $19.95/month. Cheaper ones are available but this guy is a friend and he answers when I call. Great service.

I switched to Netzero a few months back for $14.95 a month - Less problems and the 5x faster thing for dialup is nice - Plus one more driver to root for on the weekends

LOL, I had to think twice about that driver part, I don't don't watch much nascar

ISP is $21/MO.
We are so deep in the back woods, we had party lines a few years back.

Two ISPs, one is poor other is fast when working. Only down perhaps two to three days a month.

In Michigan phone companies must give a second zone toll free. Everyone else has a major town & can get any ISP service. Many are $6.95 a month.

Our second toll free zone? Merrit, MI with perhaps 200 people- yippie!

We are so deep in the woods we have to drive out for two days just to hunt. Local isp at 19.95

I use a local ISP and like it. BUT.... $10.00/ month??
Where do I sign up?

Mine did just go down a couple months ago, but it still costs just a hair over $21.00 for unlimited time. (I think)

we used a local ISP for couple years and loved it. Earthlink bought them out, doubled our monthly service rate and put customer service down the toilet. We switched to Juno for 1/2 the cost but same poor service. good luck w/ your new ISP provider

Mike, we just switched from AOL to earthlink because AOL's service was TERRIBLE!!! What kind of problems did you have with earthlink?

Googled for providers when we needed to get website up and running, and found (good rating in consumer reports, etc.) They are a national company with several local offices.

For $14.95 we get great customer service (a real office with real people), local numbers, 8x accelerator, 5 e-mail addresses, virus protection, junk mail blocker and everything I need for our website.

If I get rid of the website, I can get a version of "toast" for less money.

Most of my relatives have switched and are happy.
