Does any one know of a free ISP I could use? I just want some thing that will allow me to connect to the internet while someone else in my family uses AOL on the other line.

A new startup company, mysingtel, offers free unlimited internet surfing for life. You only need to pay the phone bills.

I have used BlueLight, Netzero, and AltaVista FreeAccess. They're really slow and there's a lot of disconnects and slow connections. But, AltaVista FreeAcess seems to be the best. I think NetZero seems to be the worst free one I've tried. The ad box is huge and If you move it around because its in your way, sometimes It will disconnect you for trying to avoid seeing the ads  Pissed. Also, there is the "NZTV" thing that shows a TV-style ad when you connect. Bluelight is so-so, but it gets irritating with nothing but K-Mart ads all over the place while surfing.(You start off in a K-Mart My Yahoo! page with K-Mart "special offers" on it, when you connect, It shows a 1-2 minute K-Mart tv ad, and the ad box always has K-Mart all over it) It's just really annoying.

Never paid a cent for web access since we've gotten the Internet...started out with Freewwweb, the best free ISP IMO (no banner ads), too bad they're dead now. Used Altavista's free access for awhile, that was pretty good. Now I use Juno-- its OK, takes a few attempts to get on though. If you dial through Internet Explorer and not the Juno software, you don't get the popup ad banner!

I used to use excite free internet service from excite.com, until I broke down and got AT&T. Excite was very good, and the connections were high, and of good quality.

Most of the free services have gone under. Do yourself a favour and get cable.

Free ISP's dont seem to last, so if you go with one, get your email through someone else like Yahoo mail in case they suddently go under.

AltaVista FreeAccess and Excite Freelane shut down when the company that provided their service, 1stUp.com, failed. 1stUp also provided the service under several other names as well, all had to shut down or find other alternatives.

I have to say I agree with CPDC10-30. If you can afford it, get a cable modem or DSL line installed. They can be used by multiple computers, either by getting a router or purchasing multiple IP addresses from the provider. And it's much much faster than AOL or any other dialup service.

Thansk for the advice everyone, but I found that the AOL account I am using now is free, so I just set up a second account. That way more then one person at my house can go online at once. By the time I have to start paying for both accounts it will be only a few more months until I go off to college so my parents don't mind the extra $20 a month for a few months.
