Hello out there!

Well I'll probably sound cheap asking this, but I want to switch from my netzero ISP to another cheapo ISP but one with less disconnects. Any of you been using the Walmart Connect or PCPeople connect? Any suggestions?

I used to beable to stay online with Netzero for a couple of hours but now I get disconnected every 15 minutes for the last couple of months. Not what they used to be, time for a change.

Thanks everybody.

If only Freei.net was still in existence...they were the best free internet provider in my opinion. I would stay away from Wal Mart anything, I think that pay service was previously bluelight.com free access and will probably suck. I can't tell you how the other ones would function since I have no experience with them.

Access-4-Free is my backup dial ISP. It's free for up to 10 hours/month, then $1/hour for the next 10 hours, and no additional charge for unlimited Internet. As a maximum charge of $10/month for unlimited Internet, it's on of the cheapest options. Their service here in SE PA has been excellent when I've used them so far.

This is a great option for backup to broadband, you have a full service ISP that you only pay for if you need it.

That looks useful, I'm half expecting my cable line to go out again somewhere in the future.

Hi Johnwill,

$10 a month is what I'm paying right now and I do want to stay in that range. Have you noticed when using Acess-4-Less how long you stay connected before being dropped? I can't get my downloads or emails completed because of Netzero dropping me so quickly.

I've had Access-4-Free on-line for hours when I was testing my web server, and I experienced no issues. NetZero is truly a ZERO in my book, and I'd drop them like a hot rock! :) BTW, does NetZero still have the advertising banner, even when you pay?

Hi again,

Well Netzero's ads are now superloaded on the homepage. Which is okay cause they've got to make money to stay in business.

Later :brush:

Do you still have to use NetZero's dialer and go to their homepage when you connect? I haven't used it for a long time, but they were pretty obnoxious when I did. :(

I've used Wal-Mart connect, and have had no complaints with it.

You do have to go through Netzero's homepage like most internet providers, Johnwill.

Now I just tried Walmart connect. It's free for the first month. Their browser doesn't let you import your bookmarks.

I am now trying out Fry's internet access. Look them up at www.frys.com They let you try them out for free for 90 days then it' $9.95 a month unlimited access. Also you don't need software. It's a network connection. And they promised they won't disconnect you after being on line for a long time.
