In fairness (urrghh) to AOL you do get access to some content that yu would otherwise have to pay a premium for, video svcs. etc. Still not sure it's worth it though.
You may have a point as "you get what you pay for" and their fingering it out.AOL and MSN match up your high speed at a cost.
Free websites may be only 56k.
So whats the rush ? If video and audio streams work,mine do.
