Unlike most other free isps, which display advertisements in a desktop adbar, Address.com interrupts your surfing for commercial breaks all the time. These commercial breaks are more annoying than a banner ad
bar because it is very hard to ignore this advertising. Many complain that it is almost impossible to surf the Internet since these ads keep interrupting you all the time. However, one advantage of this solution is that you are left with your entire desktop
space while surfing.
Address.com lists the following "catches" to their free internet service:
"During your browsing experience you will be delivered web commercial with valuable offers from our sponsors. Secondly to maintain Internet Access Service you agree to maintain an active Address.com email address. (An active email address is one that has been logged into at least 2 times in each 30 day period) Thirdly to maintain Internet Access Service you agree to participate in Address Cash and to generate a balance of at least 7.50 cents per month. Fourth, to maintain Internet Access Service you agree to install any and all required components of the Address.com software. Finally, to maintain Internet Access Service you agree to maintain Address.com as your browser homepage, search page and start page."
In addition, installation of Address.com includes installation of other programs you may not want such as Gator, MyPoints, NetFlip, etc. Some of these programs would be considered
spyware, because they collect information about where you surf and shop on the web. Therefore, this is not the best ISP for those concerned about privacy.
Another major problem with Address.com is that the software is difficult to uninstall completely. Many users report they still have annoying ad popups from Address.com even after
they have uninstalled the software.
If you decide to try it, you are installing their software at your own risk. Please do not contact us for help uninstalling the Address.com software, since we are unable to help

agreements before you sign up.
