As all of ya should know Micro$oft is the Evil Empire, and Windows (a.k.a. Winblows or Windoze) is their greatest general, so please make a difference and install Linux or FreeBSD on yer Windows comp.

Provider: AOL (at 50 bucks a month)

type: Dial up

Speed: 2-18 kbs (with alot of "Too many people are on, so screw you!" type of messages)

Provider: PeoplePC ($15 a month!)

Type: Dial up

Speed: (when swiched) 16-19 kbs (after our 56k modem got struck by lightning, replaced, struck by lightning again, replaced with the same model, upgraded and surge protected for obvious reasons) 26-35 kbs!!!

So in all, PeoplePC is great (for dial up...). Just upgrade your drivers and use the built in web accelator (set to level 3 or 4).
But, it still is dial-up. Sergentsiler, maybe you should join the PoeplePC network (it's way better than net-zero's 15 kbs speed).
