Speaking as an EX-AOL customer, I wouldn't do it. When I had AOL is was
god damn awful, even worse when Talktalk took over. I'd NEVER take out
anything more than a 3 month contract for any ISP now.
Personally I think you'd be better off looking at someone like UKFSN
(www.ukfsn.org). They are resellers for Enta (I'm with another Enta
reseller - Vivaciti) prices are from about £16 a month but they have 30
day contracts and great support.
