If this is real, I might even switch from Earthlink $9.95 to Classic with all the spam, just to be able to use TAPCIS again.

It certainly makes sense, David. The comparable Netscape plan (also owned by AOL and using the AOL/CS2K network) is also $9.95 unlimited.

The comparable Netscape plan (also owned by AOL and using the AOL/CS2K network) is also $9.95 unlimited. The Netscape plan also gives a single email address, I think. A little testing I did with Netscape showed that unaccelerated Netscape was significantly slower than unaccelerated Earthlink. But the Earthlink Accelerator is NOT free and the Netscape one is, I think, at least if one threatens to cancel.

Perhaps TPTB are trying to keep existing Classic customers, just to pay for the upkeep of the separate classic dial up network for a while.

I would hope that the Classic connectivity would not be less reliable than Netscape. In my experience Netscape was ok.

I don't know what network they're using with classic anymore, David.

In that msg. thread, a couple more people mentioned successfully signing up for the new unlimited plan so it must must be a regular Classic plan now.

Makes sense.
