I suggest that you take up one of the broadband services available. Faster is better and with broadband internet you will be connected to the web and surfing at lightning speeds. This also offers faster download of music, videos etc and a dedicated connection, not sharing a line which is the case with dial-up service. With AOL features your screen name, favorites and buddy list will remain the same when your broadband connection is installed.
I also suggest that you don’t go for the free service. AOL offers a range of affordable internet services with 24/7 support and additional benefits such as McAfee security which I cannot live without.
