I would be surprised if anyone on a 12mth contract would see a reduction in price. However, when it comes to the time for renewing!

According to the section on AOL ALL BB customers will see a reduction in price from their next bill - which is the way it should be.

I have to say i have a 512k connection and a AOL bring your own acces £6,99 a month account - the way things are going i am thinking of just going to AOL fully - the software is fine for me - and £30 for 1MB unrestricted is excellent!

Well, I stand corrected helper, although I am surprised. If it had been one of the other isps, I don't think they would have dropped the charges.

:)

Can't see them dropping my charge of £20.00 for 512kbs :D

Freeserve dropped my (and all subscribers) line rental from £30 to £28 during the 12 month contract I was in until about a year ago.

rru, no prob buddy :)

ALL ISP's should - because all you are agreeing to is taking the service for 12 months - all other factors should be flexible - but fair play to AOL - once again they gain my admiration.

Looking more and more worthy of my custom fully soon - what's the 1MBit speed like?

I also see in the FAQ's that if you pay annually - while AOL are saying you'll benefit from the price changes from your next annual billing date - they ARE giving each annual subscriber back £24,99 as a Good Will Jestur

Fair play AOL :)
 
maxing out at around 116kb/sec +- also good game ping to good uk servers.

Ping 20 or lower in quake 3 arena to good solid uk servers.

average bout 30-45

yes i had seen that - the dialler in AOL9 allows that - which is a nice feature i think :)

I used to use AOL without the software on dialup to lol :)

You dont need to install AOL 9 at all.

I installed the modem driver software off the aol cd, downloaded a free prog called cidial - configured cidial for aol - stuck it in my startup folder - my pc connects to AOL on bootup.

I also use Express for AOL email.

So at the prices quoted, why would anyone use any other isp??

Even today I heard a chap at a place I visited moan about AOL. He didn't even use it! I have tried many isps over the last 8-9 years and AOL stands head and shoulders above them.

Yes, there may be better isps, but my experience is a high quality service with free backup if I need it. Golly, all I really want is the connection to be stable and email to work.
 
yes i tried it last night actually and it shut down faster than i could see :)

thanks, i also did over 1gb so it worked.

cheers for the tip m8
