I'd rather pay the little bit extra for a good service than pay less for a crappy service (your words, although they are) plus downloading large files if you no what I mean can be a little bit iffy with aol.

AOL really suck,

firstly they have serious dodgy download rates, secondly their setup means means a lot of on-line games will not work. Finally to connect you have to use their software which hogs resources.

Finally have you checked whether this connection is capped

Need I go on.....

I detest there connections, however, I can't fault them on some of there features.

One of two people I deal with use there software over a PlusNet BB connection. Saves the hastle of downtime from one of the dialup or ADSL connections.

What software is that?

Aol itself.

You don't need to be using a AOL dialup or BB connection to connect to them. The software can be setup to connect to the over a TCP/IP connection.

This does mean the price of broadband with PlusNet, and a simple subscription with AOL as well. However, the amount of sites they use it from, means that the costs offset themselves.

Do you know why part of the AOL software they use? since the AOL software is a complete package, i.e. dialer, e-mail etc. Or it used to be.

I'm still very dubious since the AOL programs are resource happy can be a drain.

Erm, which part? There is only one AOL!

Yes, it is a all-in-one package, however, for years now (since 96/97 IIRC), you have been able to use your own dialup ISP, and connect to AOL via a TCP/IP link.

Not actualy sure if you understand what I mean.

AOL is not as bad regarding bloatware as it used to be, but it is still a royal pain in the "rear" to uninstall.

Hi,

I'm sorry for the confusion, I knew AOL was a complete program, however within the program you have e-mail etc.

I didn't know you could connect to AOL via a TCP/IP but maybe I'm being stupid but what has AOL got to offer that you would want to connect to?
When I had AOL I didn't use any of the services they provided, but we are talking 2-3 years ago.

You say you have to pay a subscription, do you know how much this is?
