Quite a good deal; my tiscali internet is almost over and I'm considering switching to AOL especially since the customer service is a lot better I hear!

There are 4 levels of contract (starting from £19.99); the only hitch is that you're tied to a 24-month contract (you may well be able to get out of this early if they change their terms again), but on the plus side you get a free wireless router and PS3 with Ratchet and Clank and Stealth on Blue-ray!

You should be able to earn up to £35 cashback after going through quidco!

Seems like a good deal.

Beware though - AOL block relaying email via anything but their servers, so if you have an email account anywhere else that you use outlook / outlook express for you are likely to have big problems.

Cold from me. Clicking through shows that the minimum cost is £29.99 a month not £19.99. 40Gb download limit is poor, I pay £17.99 a month for 'unlimited' downloads. £12 difference over 12 months = £288 so enough to buy a PS3 anyway.

AOL are nasty, I wouldnt go with them if my life depended on it. Then again, I do download a lot. If all you do is check your email etc then this maybe a good deal...

I receive my aol mail through outlook, Thunderbird and through my Blackberry. You just have to remember to use imap instead of pop and encrypt outgoing mail.

As far as AOL go, i have only used aol for my broadband and am very happy with the service, i never get disconnected and only pay £9.99 a month for 8mb with unlimited downloads.

I don't use their software though as i don't see the need for it. it is a common misconception that you have to use their software to access the internet through them.

Hope this helps

wanted to charge me £29.99 a month for 8 meg broadband!!!!!
I would still have to pay BT line rental, and this price does not include any phone calls or anything!
This is because I am not "in their own line area?!?!??"
Cheaper for me to buy a PS3.........

I rang up to cancel my AOL account and suddenly I was given a deal with unlimited downloads and a high broadband speed, plus free wireless router for £9.99 a month.
Bit annoyed I didn't ring them earlier as I was paying £21.99 per month for a really shoddy service!

AOL email will be fine, its if you have an account elsewhere, say with some web space, or a company email account you need to access from a laptop you could be in trouble.

I was with AOL for 5 years and for the last year, I had nothing but problems with them.

Their staff in the Indian call centre didn't understand english very well at all, the helpline isn't free (its 0845 if I remember), the first wireless router they sent me was defective from the start and it took a total of about 8 phone calls and over 5 hours on the phone to get a manager to agree to send a replacement, the internet speed was consistantly 5mb slower than BT Openreach said my line was capable of and that I should be getting and AOL didn't care or do anything about it which was why I left. (I was paying for 8mb and getting around or below 1mb)

In my opinion, absolutely shocking service and very very poor value for money. I'm now with Be and I can't fault them and am very happy getting an average of 12mb for £18 a month and unlimited downloads

Since the Talk Talk take over they have been appalling, with Virgin Cable now,.

Sorry i misunderstood you first post.

However i also have other email accounts from work that i access at home and they're based on bt email accounts.

AOL's ok but only if you keep out of the chatrooms.
They are full of idots, abusing people every day in the foulest and nastiest way immaginable and AOL does absolutely nothing at all to stop it. AOL is too interested in it's income to annoy abusive customers.

This does seem a little on the expensive side so the PS3 is hardly free given the overall cost over 2 years.

I think there is so much competition in the market they are desperate to tie people into longer contracts to stop them taking advantage of better offers.

I'd recommend the O2 broadband offer discussed in this thread HERE. Its £7.50 for O2 customers and £12.50 for non O2 customers and has a freephone UK based support centre.
