if yes then what isp and plan. is it reliable in term of speed.
Not supported by my ISP anymore.
yes ... 3 years ago
I wasn't aware they even offered dial-up anymore...
Those 90's.... Should wait for more than 2 mins just to load the yahoo Homepage
Reminds me of Yahoo chat.
Its 2013 buddy.lol
I'm pretty sure OP has a good reason to need Dial-up
Ahh the old BBS times...
AOL's main income source is still dial-up internet.
What reason exists today?
Yep, and they charge $15 a month for it lol
Cable, DSL, Fiber and other connection types only reach about 50->60% of the U.S. population. The rest must either be served by dialup (~$60/month), ISDN (dual bonded dialup, ~$120/month), Tx (multibonded dialup, ~$1000+), satellite (~$100/month) or fixed wireless ($15->$500/month.)
It still has its place because people who would like more than 10 feet between homes can rarely ever get high speed.
Dial-up is still sufficient for 90% of what you view the web for (i.e., web 1.0 stuff, use a flash/script disabled browser and stick to mostly text based sites like forums, and you're fine). It's also a simple solution, due to all the access numbers some ISP's provide, to create a ton of accounts on unique IPs that will get past the proxy/VPN filters of certain "difficult" websites. A search for "dial-up ISP providers" I just did yielded over 111,000 results.
My cousin uses dial-up.....he is also the cheapest person in the world.
At first i tought i just got into a troll thread, but then i realized all the seriousness of it.
Dial-up belongs in a world where 1.44mb is still considered an enormous amount of data.
This is an Internet Marketing forum and it's community is technology-driven. He who would claim to still be using dial-up and doing internet marketing with it is assurely shooting himself in the foot.
Love this...It reminded me of the late 90's where if you was on the internet no one could
call you on the house phone....So because I was on Kazaa downloading "Rush Hour"
and other "Interesting Stuff" no one could contact me...and Mobile phones were not
Dialup internet still exists and is still used. Also interesting that you get a different IP on each call.....
Most ISP's will get you around ~50kbps if you have a decent line & modem.
yes this is ok speed for browsing needs.
