    Not with WM, but if you are looking for a good, inexpensive ISP check out
    www.access4less.net
    V92 supported and pretty reliable connections.

    When selecting a ISP. The sure way of finding a good one is word of mouth in
    your own neighborhood. The only online advice you could possibly get of any
    use online. Is reliability of their software tools included in their
    software (If they use software and you plan to take this into
    consideration). How good their tech support is or lack of it, and price.

    In your neighborhood take into consideration The phone line used to connect.
    (lack of good lines can really hurt connecting online. This includes lines
    in the home.) If the ISP owns their own block of numbers or lease them, and
    percentage of downtime. How full the line is. A number that has quite a few
    busy signals, and disconnects is a line that may be reaching its capacity.
    They are more likely to be leased lines. Local ISPs usually own their own
    block. Some of these are limited when it comes to software, or lack of it.
    They may be limited in the amount of email addys you are permited to have
    also. The upside to them is they tend to bend over backwards when it comes
    to tech support, because of their competing with the bigger ISPs. Plus a
    good percentage of them own their own block. The downside to them is if you
    go local, find out how long they have been in business. Plus their
    downtime. This will give you a good indication on how well the business is
    doing. If you plan to be online quite a bit... Most ISPs say they are
    unlimited when it comes to total hours you are permited online, but the fact
    is they are limited. This is very true of the cheaper ISPs.

  5. For the record, Wal-mart, which I don't believe is issueing new
    accounts any more, maybe.... Didn't think so though.... Wal-mart is
    basically Compuserve 2000. Compuserve 2000 is a half-ass version of
    AOL.... Take AOL, but instead of all the easier to navigate forums and
    file areas, everything is a web-page and often contains errors when
    you try to pull it up.... So you could say AOL, but worse... (I know,
    you didn't expect it to get any worse....) Owned by AOL/Compuserve,
    same screen name limits, phone numbers, etc. but not as nice....
