    Yes but...

    DIAL-UP only!


    Really helpful.

    And really bland uninformative site -- sorry, but it doesn't inspire confidence.

    In fact, no telephone number or address... hmmm.

    Its exactly the same as a load of sites that offer dial up.. (like UK2 comes to mind) they have huge contention ratios and as a result are very slow.

    Nothing especailly mac friendly about a dial up number and account details...

    Actually, the suggestion that Apple users need special ISPs, or else Internet access won't work with Mac OS (X) is rather Mac-unfriendly...

    Yeah, I agree completely. Special 'Mac friendly' things for standard items like blimin' dial up suggest that Mac's have special compatibility issues, which only serves to furthers the misconception that a Mac is a niche product rather than a viable alternative.

    "support" in this case probably means technical support, in case anything goes wrong. I know a couple of ISPs that don't offer support for the Mac, even though you get an internet connection just fine.

    alot of isp's support macs now, i have used several. Why is this a big deal especially considering that its only dial up?
