How Can I make Sure That I Am Taking Advantage of the AOL Best Connect Feature

The AOL Best Connect feature is a new service we are offering that will assist in maintaining the best connection possible to the AOL service.

Note: The AOL Best Connect feature is delivered with AOL Connectivity Service (ACS) version 4.0 and above (for the United States calling area only). ACS 4.0 is installed when you download ACS as part of an AOL client that supports ACS 4.0, or if you receive an online update to an older ACS.

Note: If you use multiple computers, changes in the settings made to one computer will not change the settings on other computers. You will need to adjust the AOL Best Connect™ settings on each computer you use.
