EarthLink

Best ISP for DSL and dial-up

If you don't need the fastest possible speeds, EarthLink's DSL service provides good value and gets decent reviews compared to other DSL providers. For those without access to broadband service and who use the Internet only on occasion, EarthLink's dial-up access remains a reasonable choice from $22 per month.
