If You Don’t Have a Provider and don’t want to think about it



If you just brought your Mac home or had it delivered and you want to get connected but you don’t want to wait to find out who can get you broadband service in your area or who the local Internet Service Providers are, you can sign up, through your Mac, with the EarthLink service over your telephone modem. Later, if you discover a better deal in your area is available, you can cancel EarthLink. Or you might check around and end up deciding that EarthLink dial-up is exactly what you need after all, or you could possibly get a broadband connection through EarthLink, if you live in the right place. The point is that with Apple’s set up, you can get started right away without having to make any permanent decisions, and in five minutes you can be on the web.
