Thanks ASTRoberts, i sent a email and wait to see what they say which will probably be "its for new customers" if that happens i will see how much other broadband providers are, and cancel Aol and see if they offer me it cheaper. I not really bothered if i have Aol or not as i am so fed up with their start up screen with all the adverts on that i have to click "no thanks" to get rid off , Oh and at night when i switch the computer off Aol decide to download something and it takes ages !

Yes, the Aol adverts are becoming a real pain! Please do let us know the outcome of your email because there seems to be a bit of confusion over the cost of Aol Silver Broadband.

Good Luck,
