Disadvantages: Over priced
AOL is a competent provider. When it first started its penny a minute deal this was very good, but with the arrival of the free services AOL has not done anything extra to make the service competitive.
There is also a problem with AOL's administration. They appear to be very good at loosing direct debit mandates and other correspondence. This also appears to have happened not only to myself, but also others I know who were using the service.
The connection speeds tend to be quite good, but line drops are frequent. Over all, not worth the payment due to the number and reliability of the free ISP's.
