Los Angeles Free-Net Information

A site to access updated information about the best deal on the Web.

08 May 2017

 
L.A. Free-Net has received notification from our service provider that they will discontinue DSL service to the southern California area in about two months. Therefore, it is with much regret that LAFN will need to cease providing DSL internet access effective June 30, 2017. Inasmuch as this action will make it impossible to remain in compliance with our mission, the Board of Directors has reluctantly decided to close down the L.A. Free-Net altogether. This includes email services and individual web pages. L.A. Free-Net strongly recommends that you download all email and that those of you with web pages make back up files if you don't already have them. We recognize this will be an inconvenience to many of our users. However, in recognition and appreciation of your long-standing loyalty over the years, we will provide service from June 1 thru June 30 at no charge. All accounts will be calculated as ending May 31, 2017. Since we already have verified mailing addresses for those with DSL accounts, those users will receive pro-rated refunds automatically. However, since email only accounts ($30/year) sometimes have inaccurate mailing addresses, we need to have each email-only user confirm his/her mailing address by sending an email to the email address provided in the System Bulletin requesting a partial refund and including the correct mailing name and address. Upon receipt of the mailing information, an appropriate pro-rated refund will be mailed to you. For the sake of accounting clarity, if your account is scheduled to renew on or before May 31, 2017, please send your check as usual. If your account is scheduled to renew on or after June 1, 2017, please do not send payment. Thank you again for your support over the years.

Hi Doug,

I've been a longtime user of LAFN and am sad to see this go. Do you know any internet provider alternatives that other users are going to?

Thanks.
 
I don't have a complete list and there doesn't seem to be any particular choice that is more popular that I can tell. Here are some of them:

gmail.com
roadrunner.com
twc.com
yahoo.com
hotmail.com
verizon.net
runbox.com
gmx.com
sbcglobal.net
dslextreme.com
outlook.com
ca.rr.com
icloud.com
netzero.com
coa-pasadena.org
lanomad.com
protonmail.com
comcast.net
charter.net
mail.vrticlre.us
sonic.net
ponymail.com
earthlink.net
mail.asonart.us

As you can see, there is quite a variety and I have no real experience with any of them.
