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.
