Internet Service Providers, Professional Services & Organizations
  • Charter's Pipeline cable Internet service, if available (it is in most areas of Morro Bay) has got to be the best deal -- very fast, reasonably cheap, and usually but not always reliable
  • Yahoo SBC DSL service is now offered in the area... be careful of your actual speeds obtainable in your specific location before choosing this over Charter.
  • DigitalPutty offers broadband wireless access (symmetric 300 kbps for $25.95 and 512 kbps for $48.95 as of 3-05) - used e.g., by The Flying Dutchman to provide access to boaters I think... requires a fairly large antenna to be installed as I recall.
  • KCBX.net, SLO nonprofit Internet service provider
    The best and cheapest way to learn about computers and the Internet is to take the free and affordable "hands-on" computer classes at KCBX.net in San Luis Obispo, CA.  Online learning is also available -- $5 per month buys you unlimited access to 34 different Desktop Computer User courses, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, Exchange, Paint Shop Pro, and many others.
  • FixNet in SLO seems to be popular for dial-up customers (SLO is a local call from Morro Bay)
    (Not the best deal for web hosting)
  • Coastal Computers seems to be a good "small local" outfit that can hold your hand.  They say "we are small and friendly and want to keep it that way."
  • lingt media Flash animation, web design and development (Los Osos)
  • Website design by http://www.allstarcreative.com/ is very nice (SLO) (they did http://www.sportsrig.com/  )
  •  Website design and more by Fish Lips Creative (SLO, Morro Bay)
    (designers of http://www.embarcaderoinn.com/, where Fish Lips Creative's Cristi is a "marketing genius" said Embarcadero Inn's
    Ed Biaggini III.  "Therese, Cristi and Mike have been the backbone of our 'reinvention'." )
  •  Website hosting, Wi-Fi, and software competencies by  tolosatech.com  ("Our focus is providing not just a presence on the Internet, but providing a clean and succinct statement of who and what you are... ) (Miles Clark from Tolosa hosts http://www.embarcaderoinn.com/ )
  • LosOsosOnline.com Brando McCune, 15 years-old, local entrepreneur -- does good web site work!
  • I see http://www.thegrid.net/  was used by some, but it seems to have been acquired by Earthlink  
  • For those who want "free" Internet Access (nothing is "free")
    • NetZero is one of the few free "advertising-based" ISPs remaining, with SLO access numbers (NetZero currently supports only Windows 95/98/ME and Windows NT) ...of the others... [10 hours per month free]
    • Bluelight.com's limited "free" Internet access [no longer free] through  Spinway.com (same as bluelight.com) [no longer free] has a SLO local access number, but it has many usage limitations... and 
    • Juno.com's (now same as NetZero) for Morro Bay residents (call San Luis Obispo) [limited free service]
      • I have tested most all the "free" services in the past (many have since gone out of business), and they are really bad -- they will likely crash your PC, put up annoying "ad-bars," time out on you, etc.  They are all selling "premium" services now.  Better to pay a little more and get a real ISP.  
      • (Note: 2001, Juno and NetZero announced that they have merged into a new company called United Online)
  • Wireless Internet options at http://www.tcsn.net/services/wireless.html as well as more traditional ISP (access) and hosting options http://www.tcsn.net/
