Most cheap ISPs don't offer the full suite of ISP services that one might expect. There are a few services in particular that are worth checking before signing up with a low-cost ISP. First, it is very rare for a low-cost ISP to provide Usenet news access, and there are times when virtually everyone can make use of Usenet. Second, inexpensive ISPs will probably also not offer any shell account options. Third, cheap ISPs will usually not provide secure access methods like APOP, SFTP, SSH, and SSL.
