dial up?

i am moving this weekend, and where i am moving to, the only internet available is dial up. what is the best to go with? i am thinking Net Zero 3G high speed. what is the best way to get the info on my computer before i get there. i don't know the phone # yet, but as soon as i get a phone line, i want to just be able to jump online

I'm sorry man, I wish I knew some dialup companies but its been at least 6 years since I was even close to dialup. I would ask your neigherboors what they use, the more local it is, the better the connection will be. Good luck.

AOL?!

God... about 3 years ago my parents were AOL religious.. saying a high speed connection was too much and blah blah blah i'm stuck in the past.

Finally I upgraded to DSL for them, half the price, XXX the speed.

Anyhow, good luck with your dial up!

you might want to check around first, there were a hand full of companies in the area that were offering a wireless highspeed service in areas without broadband.

Or there is satellite, but damn dialup sucks, i use my schools free dialup at work some times Its so frustrating after using high speed for so long...

yeah, i know it. i know ppl that have Satellite, and they tell me it is just as slow as dial up. i have looked, i find noone offering it, unless i want to spend $600 to start it up

i went ahead and signed up for Net Zero 3G high speed last night
