    Jun 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Uninstaller works
    Cons: System crasher, no features, bad connections, did I mention system crashes (and Kernel Illegal Operations!)

    Summary: Recently, I came across yet another free Internet Service Provider, Address.com. Everything looked good - free email, somewhat nice website, small download, plenty of access numbers. Yet, despite all that, If this isn't the worst free ISP there is, ... read more

  • A very poor addition

    Oct 18, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: I can not think of any reason someone would want the "address helper".
    Cons: This product often flags valid requests for URLs as nonexistent.

    Summary: This product somehow got installed on my machine. Whether it was done intentionally, without my knowledge, by someone using my machine or whether it was the result of some cleverly disguised "ad" is irrelevant at this point. It often intercepts ... read more

    Cons: Disconnects after 20 minutes, ads show up while using other ISP, doesn't uninstall.

    Summary: I wanted a back up ISP, and thought Address.com sounded good. I downloaded the software and started surfing. The ads didn't seem too bad- about 20 seconds long, every 4 minutes. Then, after about 20 minutes, I was disconnected with no warning. I ... read more

    Apr 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: No floating banners ontop of your browser.
    Cons: Advertisements every minute!

    Summary: Address.com is one of the lowest rated internet services to me. At first, when you're at their website, they tell you all the benefits, how Address.com's internet service is great and all, but even in the website, you can see several leaks as to what ... read more

    Pros: None that I can think of
    Cons: You install this program, and you will NEVER be able to get rid of it.

    Summary: I installed address.com on my computer (HP 1gigahertz PIII cpu, 128 mb ram, running Windows ME) and the nightmare began. Ads kept popping up left and right. I couldn't surf more than one page view at a time before it would interrupt with those stupid ... read more

    Pros: NONE, other than being "free"
    Cons: Everything else!

    Summary: I had been a customer of NetZero for about a month, and was curious to see what else was out there as far free providers go. When I happened upon address.com, promising "no ad bar", I decided to try it out. That is when my problems started. I used the ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Free...That's about all
    Cons: Ads that pop up about every 4 minutes.

    Summary: Ok, we all know that free ISPs are supported by advertising, right? Most present ad banners that can get in the way of your surfing and that decrease your screen size, so when I read about address.com I liked their idea of occasionally serving just a ... read more

    Pros: The connection was suprisingly secure.
    Cons: Slow, Hard to use

    Summary: Believe me, I have tried every way to get free Internet. For the most part, they are not half bad. Other times, they can be nothing but a splitting headache. I thought that I had seen the worst when it came to free Internet, but when a service like ... read more

    Summary: Please! I’ve never been subjected to so much abuse! What is wrong with them? Every minute or so you get either a pop-up window or, even worse…it intrudes itself onto your web pages! This happens not from a wrong URL. It simply INTRUDES whenever it ... read more
