I recently made the switch from dial-up to DSL, signing with Hawaii Online (by Pacific Light Net Communications), and I wish I had done it a lot sooner. At $40-50 (depending on the deal you get) per month, it is a bit pricey, but is worth every penny. You will need to pay for the professional installation, but after that, using it is very easy. There is enhanced web mail and e-mail service, free anti-virus and firewall protection, and VERY good 24/7 customer service. All-in-all, an absolute joy to use – it makes surfing the web fast, fun, easy, and safe.
