There are two ways of accessing AOL from outside the UK, both of which have different costs associated with them:
- Connect to AOL using a local Internet provider (or cybercafe) - in this case you will incur the charges of the local Internet service in question.
- Connect to AOL directly, using AOL's network of international access numbers, located in over 100 countries. Use of these numbers carries a communications surcharge of at least 2.50 an hour, depending on the country.
Note: New AOL accounts cannot use international access numbers for the first 60 days.
