I agree that Compuserve is a decent worldwide ISP (beware of CompuServe 2000 though), but the login script is not always the same. It is often very similar - in particular the last few steps - but there are differences

My login script for France (where I live) is slightly different from my login script for Switzerland (where I work). And the one for Germany (where I am employed) is again different.

Morale: Not only check the phone number you need in your next destination but also the login script.
