I'm looking for a cheap dial-up account for when I'm on the road, and for the rare occasions the DSL isn't working. I'm currently considering Basic ISP, which offers 200 hours/month for $6.95, and Netscape, which offers unlimited access for the same price.
Netscape claims it requires Windows. I tried on two occasions to ask an Netscape tech rep whether it merely uses PPP, and got these responses:
"It doesn't use a protocol"
"If you cannot connect via PPP, we recommend that you use a regular land line to connect."
Does anybody know if Netscape is doing anything that might inhibit my using the account on a Mac?
