    I don't know any off the top of my head, but I'm sure a few of 'em accept PayPal, which in turn, accepts not only Solo, but pretty much every other card AND direct bank widthdrawal (so even if you don't have a card you can pay basically).

    I think newsdemon takes switch cards. With solo cards you can only use them to draw money out of the bank (Unless its changed since the last time I had one years ago). Try to get you bank to send you a switch card.

    Newsdemon takes Solo cards, and I highly recommend it.

    Solo cards have always been debit cards since they were launched in 1997.

    That's normal, it's the same with me on giganews, one connection goes at 250-300kb/s while 5 go at 170kb/s each. (I have 10 connections but i don't like using all 10..)
