Description of service

The basic package was a 56K dial up connection through a phone based modem. The account comes with 6.6GB e-mail account that allows attachments of up to 20Mb. There is also a 24 hour technical support and customer service hotline, which I have never needed to use.

The e-mail account is a popular web based e-mail client. Also included in the price is an internet security pack that helps protect against spyware, adware, malware and the like. This also includes a spam filter, a firewall and parental control features.


Review of Service

I have had no problem with this service, and for a dial-up connection the speed is, as advertised, comparable to a slow broadband dsl connection, but far cheaper. There are no annoying pop-up or ad bars associated with the ISP, and there are no large software packages to download before you can use the connection.


Tips

If you need an internet connection easily without any set-up hassle, this is a good option, as unlike a broadband or dsl connection, you do not have to set up any special equipment, you simply need a working phone line. This is especially good if you only need a temporary internet connection or live in an area where faster access is not an option.
