I'm looking for a new ISP. Right now I have america online and absolutely hate it. I know as far as dial up goes, I'm not going to get a significant increase in bandwidth, so I'm looking for other features. I tried Netzero and had to reformat my hard drive to fix it. The particular Netzero disk even had the same problems in another computer. I want to use Opera as a browser, so I don't need an isp like aol taking my computer over and making the choices for me. Does anyone have any recommendations? I know the first recommendation will be dsl or cable, but I live too far out in the country (which also reduces my bandwidth even more). ISDN is not available in my area either. I've looked into satellite, but it's way too expensive. I also don't like the idea of wind being able to knock me offline (assuming wind hitting the dish would knock it offline). I get booted randomly enough by aol. I have to leave my pc online overnight for any downloads over 10 or so MB, so aol does me no good.
