Esat does on occasion require more than one connect attempts to get
through. I've had it just sorta go dead during the dial and other times
it's just plain engaged. This doesn't happen hugely often though. Also,
unless a minute or so is a critical amount of time to wait to logon then
I'd say Esat is the one to go with, given the price, web space and
