Earthlink is my ISP. Could have chosen RoadRunner or AOL, too, from Time Warner. I liked the J.D. Powers ratings for Earthlink back in 2002, plus the lower cost vs. RR and AOL (even though Time Warner is the Earthlink carrier in NE Ohio), when I made the jump from Verizon dial up to cable. I'm VERY SATISFIED with Earthlink. Just an FYI: I have VoIP (very pleased with Quantumvoice). Also, I need speed for downloads due to business (in-home office); dial up is way too slow. DSL is available from Time Warner, but I'd need to see/hear a good arguement to convince me to switch to DSL since I don't care about the availability of 300 TV channels, movie channels, etc. I'm still running a 6 year old system with Windows ME (I felt Windows XP wasn't worth the investment 2 - 3 years ago so am waiting for VISTA to prove itself after release to the public), which I've tweaked a bit, and keep it clean -a real must with 512 MB RAM vs. factory 64 MB.
