Comparing Internet Providers

We've had high speed Internet for so long that I forget some people still have a dial up ISP. I almost forget what that is like. Sometimes dial up is the only type of Internet access available so people have to make due with what they have. Sometimes it's a matter of how much they can afford to pay for Internet access. is a site that helps users compare the different types of Internet access, Cable Internet, DSL, Satellite Internet, and even Dial Up, to find what will work best for them. Once they decide that Cable Internet is best, for instance, they can compare different cable internet service providers. Another option with high speed Internet access is to use Voice Over IP or VOIP for phone service. lists and compares several VOIP providers, too.

If high speed Internet is available in your area, it's worth checking out. It makes surfing the web so much faster and nicer. The VOIP is nice, too - especially if you make a lot of long-distance phone calls. We don't really make that many calls, but the phone service is cheaper than what we were paying before, and we couldn't make any long-distance calls.
