Now that's something to chew on! I hope there is another solution for you soon.

Consider satellite Internet if you live in an area that doesn't have a lot of infrastructure.

Well I made inquirery today and discovered that satelite is available via contract..$1000 for equipment lease plus 100 per month plus 20 for dialup to cover sat down time via 12 month contract and download speeds are throtted...

 unlimited dialup package for 30 with a two week wait..but billing starts immidiately so I pay for two weeks wait. sat install is longer.. both have zero tech support for linux and assume it may work..but full tech support for windows.  If I choose dial up, I can add the windows accelorator software for just 5 dollars per month..

high speed is near and $35 per month so think I should continue the dialup service until it arrives. the benifits do not outway the cast for satelite. Down time should be minimal unless linux is an issue which is my problem.

my old service was 10 bucks unlimited and just worked.

There are several free dialups all over the place.  Not talking Juno or that other famous crap.  Most of them are for certain areas.  Maybe you can get lucky?  Google for free dial up or dialup.  A slug of things come up.  I'd dig further but don't know your location.

Meh...  He'll get over it.  According to his other thread he's "self absorbed", so it won't hurt him to give a little ;)

High-speed Internet rules. It's worth the extra $25 / month.

 :) it is the same price as dialup if I wait a little bit. I refuse to shell 1000 to borrow a dish so I can pay 100 bucks a month for utube and better downloads...skinflint..someone who hates spending money or giving it away..although I wait with bated breath
