it cost's $10 monthly. unlimited service. what do you think of it?
my guess would be that if its a wal-mart product it will be decent..... 10$ a month isnt very much so how can you lose
wow Wal*Mart does internet? i didn't know that
anyway, i guess it's worth a shot, sounds good, but ill stick with my cable
Check the fine print. Unlimited might mean "go over x amount of megabytes or x amount of time" & you pay more. It is still unlimited but get your wallet out.
can you put up a link to the advertisment? Is it boardband or dialup?
also u could try the juno/netzero premieum thingy. it's $10 also i think, and unlimited
Take a look at BigZoo also. I use them for a calling card instead of having long distance at home, awesome prices. Co-workder uses the internet service (dial-up) and doesn't have any complaints.
Wal-Mart doing dial up?? I think they might be reselling services. Damn I hate their stores... Wal-Mart where white trash goes to shop ...Its a joke ppl get over yourself
KMart used to as well, not sure if they still do
it's dailup. www.wal-mart.com. sorry it's not a link. i don't remember how to do a link. kmart has the same deal. you can download kmart over the net in 19 minute's.
I've always found it funny that all of these dial up services always give you a link to download their product. Well, if I needed your service, how the hell am I supposed to download it???
why would you have to d/l anything??? all you need is a username... password... and phone to dail into ...or at least thats how i used to do it many years ago
**fondly remembers old 33.6 Sportster**
According to Wal-mart:
For just $9.94 a month, you get:
• 700 hours FREE for a month
• Unlimited Internet access and email
• Fast dial-up connections
• Easy, 3-step instructions
• Family-friendly controls
• Instant messaging
Here is the fine print:

Just in case you were interested in the link
If I read this right you must use 700 hours in one month not to be charged extra fees 700 hours = 29.166666666666666666666666666667 days that you would have to leave your computer hooked to the net.
Someone correct me if I am reading this wrong?
Wal-Mart products decent??? WTF ARE YOU STONED?? Wal-mart sucks!!
I work for a major ISP and everytime a customer switches to us and tells us they had wal-mart internet we usually have to restore half the damn settings!!!!
Stay AWAY!!!!!! Why would you trust a discount stores ability to make a reliable and working internet service.. stop and think about it.
You ARE reading it wrong. It is referring to the free trial. It's just like AOLs, except with less hours. You can try it for free for up to 700 hours in one month. If you go over the 700 hours in the month, then you will be charged for that month. At least that's how I understood it.
how about k-mart. my telephone man said it was better than AOL?
sorry no drugs here.. just a little rum
we're talking 700 hours to try it out and "10" dollars a month after that ...if it blows cancel it....lmao
Thanks that makes more sense
