  • Onemain what?!? Pain!! ("Now an Earthlink Company")

    Nov 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sometimes it works
    Cons: Slow response time. Then when you get thru, they never know anything.

    Summary: We signed up under a local ISP back in Nov '99 when we first got our computer. At the time, they were the only local ISP (we live in the boondocks) that we knew of at the time. Since we weren't happy with them, we were looking for a change. My husband ... read more

  • - Not For Me

    Pros: OK connections.
    Cons: Basically everything else.

    Summary: I also started out using USIT (U.S. Internet) based in Knoxville, TN. Connection speeds were fair, averaging 28800 or so. Of course, I live out in the area that doesn't have very good phone lines, but I assume if I was anywhere else, I would have ... read more

    Pros: see review
    Cons: see review

    Summary: Here's my OneMain experience. OneMain consists of many small ISPs recently conglomerated into one, so others may have had very different experiences. I saw their ad a couple of months ago on TV, and being sick of my free ISP, I decided to ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: They claim the rates will not change from the former ISP.
    Cons: The connection time is Slow.

    Summary: Among the ISP's that provide a local connection number in my telephone company service area is OneMain. They identify themselves as the "Hometown Internet Service" because the technical support personnel supposedly live and work in the area. ... read more

  • Oh, What Happened to Customer Service?

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Many dialup locations ?
    Cons: Everything else

    Summary: As most of you know, bought out United States Internet (USIT) a year or so ago. I signed up with USIT as my ISP back over 5 years ago. There were only 2 local ISPs in my rural town back then, and USIT was far superior, as I had accounts ... read more

    Pros: Good connection, rarely down
    Cons: Lousy customer service, Billing problems, contact problems

    Summary: My original ISP (Lightspeed) was consumed by OneMain. So, I became a subscriber by default. I never had a problem with the old ISP. But, my dealings with OneMain have been yet another thing. My connection is fine. And it is almost never down, . . . ... read more

  • If you're gonna dial up, OneMain might be the way to go.

    Nov 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive; No "use" charges; Good connection speeds.
    Cons: Dial-up ISPs all have the same problems.

    Summary: Dial-up internet access can be a downright pain in the butt, am I right? First, I don't care what company you sign-up with, you WILL have dial up problems. Second, if you want to be able to use the internet without more banner ads from "free" ... read more

    Summary: Onemain Customers! Open your eyes! This company is not working against us, but rather for us. Every single time I have called support, they have been more then helpful and friendly, I pay 9.99 per month, and although run into busy ... read more

    Pros: Formerly was a great ISP
    Cons: Poor connectivity, email outages

    Summary: The Grid was a superior ISP. Since OneMain took over, it's been steadily deteriorating. Now takes several tries to get a connection (busy signals are rare, it just won't connect). Problems have been increasing the past couple of weeks. Lately, email has ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: poor connection, slow connection, very poor e-mail

    Summary: As JPS Net this ISP was satisfactory. When One Main.Com took over, the change over was very noticeable, disconnects multiplied (my standby Alta Vista did not disconnect so it wasn't the lines). During peak times 8am to 8pm email delivery became and is ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: money hungry

    Summary: OneMain has repeatedly taken money from me, after I cancelled my subscription with them. So my point would be if you choose them, you must choose them for ever. Otherwise you will be charged for not using them. Just be careful with giving them ... read more

    Pros: Hmmmmm...
    Cons: Unreliable, slow, frustrating.

    Summary: When I first signed up with an ISP, there was only one available in this area. I didn't realized that TheGrid was different from any other, because I had nothing for comparison. I didn't know how well-off I was! We still only have one ... read more

    Cons: Website lacks the information most of us want to know (PRICE)

    Summary: After seeing someone else's review on this product I was compelled to see whether or not it was a free internet ISP, or a Pay for access (typical) ISP. From the other Epinion member's writing - slow connections, poor customer service, and the like I ... read more
