    Pros: hispeed is very quick
    Cons: bad pictures

    Summary: The high speed NetZero ad was hard to believe, saying that their new high speed online service is up to 5 times faster--using the same regular phone line. Even though I still have one free month of AOL, I wanted to give this hispeed service a try. I ... read more
