Here's Why you should sign up for CopperNet

These are my personal opinions based on 30 years computer experience.

I have been a computer consultant fixing problems people have had with AOL Viruses, MSN connection issues, Optimum Online (Cablevision) self-installation problems, Verizon DSL service issues, and the infamous bankrupt DSL companies.

Every time I visited an AOL user, which by the way was very, very often, because they got NO help from AOL. I asked them why do you put up with this nonsense? You dialup and get bombarded with Commercials? You sign off and have to wait for AOL software and advertisements to load onto your hard drive.

I always wondered why I couldn't just use Dial-up Networking that comes built-in with Windows and use either Netscape or Internet Explorer.

Now I do.
