AT&T INTERNET PULL-OUT LEAVES READER WONDERING

Dear Source,
What a shock to loose AT&T Worldnet Internet service in the Virgin Islands! I would be interested to know what other Source readers have to say about the other Internet Service Providers (ISP) available here.
I use AT&T. I have used viaccess as well for years. While there was a rocky period during the consolidation period with Cobex, viaccess has been strong for several months now. The $19.96 monthly fee is reasonable. My only complaint is the lack of a SPAM filter — I get about 10 unsolicited emails per day. Sometimes it's amusing, but mostly it is just a waste of time to sort the wheat from the chaff.
I understand that VI PowerNet, Earthlink.net, and America online all have local service. And I learned last night on the Source that MSN (Microsoft network) does as well.
Can other Source readers comment on what ISP they are using and how they like it?
