aol - crap

  aceguy 18:31 01 Oct 2004

i have had aol now for around 4 days(dial up)while i wait for my aol broadband modem. so far i think it has been total rubbish compared to my old freeserve isp. the thing is when i try to share sum files aol shuts of and does not connect back by itself-no matter how i set it up!!! will the broadband be this bad to?? any ideas anyone??

well for starters the broadband will be faster but there are people out there who dont like AOL so you may get some nice on the other hand use a compnay called Central Point...1meg connection for only £26 a month...cheaper than BT, AOL and Wanadoo...service is here

I don't use AOL myself, but to be honest, I would have thought that any ISP that big, cannot be crap aceguy :-))

I have been with AOL for nearly the last 3 years and of this time I have been on AOL Broadband for 18 months with NO problems.
If it is properly set up I can't see what the problem is.

I have used AOL for 2 years and would'nt use anything else now. I have mine linked via a router to 3 Pc's Spot On!
