    Does anyone know of a really cheap dialup provider? Thanks, Lenny.
  2. Where? Some cities have a free service.

    Free Internet Access Providers: Now you can get online for the cost of a
    local call, or less! Many providers also offer web space, free email and
    other goodies...

    Keep in mind that with netzero, they will autobill your credit card
    forever and getting them to quit is nearly impossible. The only way
    is typically to report your credit card lost. NetZero has no customer
    service whatsoever and will charge by the hour for leaving you on hold
    waiting for a overseas script reader.

  4. Thats weird.. I didn't have to use a credit card to sign up for netzero free

    Here is a site that lists them all- Before
    we went to cable, we used and were really happy with
    it. If we ever decided to go with dial up again, I would go back to
    them. Or type in free or cheap isp in Google and you'll come up with
    lots of choices.

    There is a company of which the name eludes me right now - that offers like
    $4.95 a month - albeit the hours you can use it may be limited. They have
    other plans available. Do a google search for ISPs. It should produce some

    The one I have is $9.95 a month. Not bad but - slow for pictures and large
    files, but then I don't do many of those anyway. But I have unlimited access
    for that price. I am saving $120 a year over a similar service with the same
    speed and issues - which I was using before.

    You may want to check out allvantage below. $5.95/mo no frills
    service with a very large number of local dialin access points.
  11. Not gonna happen unless you have a lot of phone lines. Its 10 hours per
    phone number, not account.

    AT&T's basic DSL is $24.95 month, making it only $5 month more than
    your former dialup service.

    retired, but still working from home when the price is right ;-)

    The phone company hasn't seen fit to give us DSL here - yet. Cable is here
    but a bunch more expensive.
  14. I did a Google search on "cheap dialup service" and got lots of composite
    sites. Peruse the list and choose one. I was on AllVantage for quite some
    time and felt they did a good job.

    I can't complain about mine - really. It does as good a job as the one I was
    paying $10 more for per month prior to it. The only thing is, as I already
    pointed out - "large" files and "pictures" are slow - but otherwise I'm
    happy. But - I don't do many "large" files or pictures - anyway.

    There are a few out there who as I said - charge like $4.95 a month, but you
    get only like 15 hours. I'm on a lot - daily with business and so on.
    Unlimited access for $9.95 a month, I'm not going to complain. Down time has
    been mimimal. My last provider also "was" carrying the News groups - but
    stopped - claiming it was costing him $2000 a month to do so. I find that a
    bit hard to believe, but whatever. Needless to say - out he went as a

    If its available in your area. Its not yet everywhere. They are too cheap to
    build the sub c o to do it here.

  17. There have to be enough potential customers to pay for the new

    Service to my country? Been there, Done that, and I've got my DD214 to
    prove it.
