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.

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.

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???

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:

Local access is not available everywhere. Availability may be limited, especially during peak times. UP TO 700 HOURS OF TRIAL TIME MUST BE USED WITHIN ONE MONTH OF INITIAL SIGN-ON. TO AVOID BEING CHARGED A MONTHLY FEE, SIMPLY CANCEL BEFORE TRIAL PERIOD ENDS BY CALLING 1-888-855-0942. Premium services carry surcharges, and communication surcharges may apply, including in Alaska, even during trial time. Members may incur telephone charges on their phone bill, depending on their location and calling plan, even during trial time. Available to new members in the United States, age 18 and older; a major credit card or checking account is required. In most areas, 56K is available. Actual connection speeds may vary.

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.
