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.


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.
