How to Get DSL or High-Speed MSN Internet Service
By Terrance Karter
MSN is a Web browser, but it is also an Internet service. You can get the MSN service easily, right online. If you don't buy it directly from MSN, you can use a cable, phone or Internet company in your location that partners with MSN to provide service. You'll get an MSN email, online storage and Internet capabilities with MSN.
Click on the MSN.com link in References. Then choose "Get It Now," either at the location under the high-speed dial-up box, or the regular MSN service box.
Specify your location, and the site will tell you if MSN Internet is available in your area.
Choose your type of service. Give your phone number and address. Choose "Self Install" or "Professional Install." If you choose to have a professional install your Internet, one will come to your home at a scheduled time. If you choose to install it yourself, you will get a package in the mail with the necessary items.
Pay for your monthly service online, at the MSN site, or by sending a check or money order with the bill that comes in the mail. Usually, your service will begin within a week, and can cancel it within one or two weeks when you no longer want it.
