  • At only $15/month for unlimited access, Sirius Connections provides inexpensive and reliable internet access. Their generous lowest-cost package is currently $18.95 per month.

  • The Little Garden started out as a way for the San Francisco Internet community to get reasonable cost Internet Access. They specialize in providing connectivity for businesses and technical users--everything from PPP to T1 lines.

  • Slip.Net provides users with a variety of services and packages which can always be upgraded gradually. (For instance, an additional POP e-mail acct. only costs $5.00.) Their lowest package runs under $20/month with unlimited connection time.

  • Based in Mountain View, Best has an outstanding reputation for providing 'round the clock technical support and trouble-free connectivity. Their emphasis has shifted more toward corporate clients and "web hosting" accounts, so the lowest monthly package is now at $30.00.

  • If you're a member of the Well you can put pages up on their server, in addition to having access to some of the most stimulating and interesting online conferencing anywhere.

  • Another active online community, this one with a very progressive political orientation, exists in the Bay Area. The Institute for Global Communications offers PeaceNet, EcoNet, WomensNet, and LaborNet to their users for conferencing and internet access.

  • In a totally different league, GeoNet provides blazing T1 and T3 connections to the Greater Bay Area. Boardwatch magazine and Keynote Systems recently rated GeoNet the best value in the Bay Area for price and performance.

  • Based in Walnut Creek but offering a number of toll-free IP dial-up numbers across the Bay Area, CCnet is worth checking out. Their basic dial-up IP package is $19.95 (only up to 28.8Kbps), and their ISDN accounts are $29.00 a month, not including hardware.

  • Although their focus has long since been on serving businesses, CRL offers nationwide dial-up and excellent individual SLIP/PPP accounts as well. At two pricing tiers of $17.95 and $24.95, individual account holders can choose from what package suits their needs best.
