On the up side: AOL is giving away a 40GB Playstation 3 with a copy of Ratchet and Clank Future and a wireless Sixaxis controller to customers who sign a two-year contract for AOL Broadband Wireless Plus. On the down side: It's AOL!
reviews that have never been put up for rachet and its just kind've annoying. but anyway this is a good deal.
no thanks, rather buy a PS3 myself
Lol. AOL must be pretty desperate.
Does anyone know if this deal is available in the US?
dont do it aol is the devil
No amount of joy from the ps3 is worth that... :(
Seriously what''s wrong with AOL. I have Road Runner, but I jsut wanted to know why everyone is saying don't get AOL.
eats your computer
To answer your question, read my comment at #7.1 below...
Thats actually not a bad deal. How much is AOL broadband service per month? Site says $44.95 so times it by 24 months equals $1078.80 for the whole 2 years contract. Minus the cost of PS3 and game would bring it down to $619.80 so thats around $25.82 a month. But then again you can have Verizon or AT&T DSL for less than $20 a month.
It's not really the actual online service in question...but their 'legendary', infamous customer service reps. Yup, the same AOL customer service reps that will do everything in their power to make you stay in AOL (based on my experience and countless others) as if their mortal lives would be literally cut short if they didn't. Trust me, their customer service reps ARE the very last people you would want to talk to at the other end of the line.
Unless of course you're forced into paying for Comcast internet, which costs more than all of the above. /suicide
I Have comcast Internet, it's about $45 a month, but very reliable, said it before, i'll say it again, you get what you pay for.
Why go with AOL? It takes over your computer!! If you've got Sky, get their broadband - £10/month for 16mb and unlimited usage. You can't go wrong. Or £5/month for 8mb - or if you're REALLY cheap you can get 2mb for free. Why wait? Also, I'd rather get a free PS3 with a mobile phone contract.
