AOL – Rating: *
In order to get on line with AOL you must install there bloated software. (As far as i am aware you still are required to install there software to get on line) The typical install can take a good chunk of space and also changes computer settings and can be time consuming to remove the software completely. While you may get up to 3 months free to start off with they can be much more expencive than other isp’s. Prices vary with plans.
There software is required to get on line. (Small Download and install size) They also like to spam your inbox with ads even if you pay for the service. Free Service has an ad window. paid service has a bar across the screen. Juno has 2 software choices for dialing up. Small download like netzero or there old e-mail/internet program. These 2 services are best as an emergency backup for when your main service is down.
