If you are an American Express cardholder, you can get free isp access at http://www.amexol.com . This is a test program that Amex is running for cardholders (you must enter your card number to get an online account/password). Of course the stock version puts an ad banner on your computer and is not Windows CE compatable. However you can use it with the ePods and IE 3.0 or 4.0, if you use rasspy to identify the correct password etc.
Problem is, most free-ISP deals don't last, because nobody makes any money on them. The failure of Kmart's Bluelight.com program is just the latest example of a string of free-ISP failures. And those that do survive often block efforts to bypass the ad-banner screens, as must be done to make it work on an epods. I would not be the least bit surprised if American Express pulls the plug on their free-ISP deal before it goes too far.
So here's an almost-free alternative that's apparantly a sure thing. Go to http://www.accessmicro.com . They are running MSN internet access for $5/month if you sign on for a year. Price is $100 minus $40 rebate, for one year access. If this promo has any sort of ad-banner requirement none is being mentioned on the accessmicro site. I ordered my copy of the CD today; I'll keep you all posted when it arrives.
