Quoting DeltaGuy (Reply 4): Dialup sucks...period. Cut your waiting time by 90% and spend the $50/month and get cable internet....done
If he can't afford $27/mo he probably can't afford $50 a month. I agree it sucks but I know some people who use dialup and it is better than nothing. The internet is quickly becoming something you can't live without.

Take a look at SBC-ahoo DSL. It is only $19.95/month. I don't know if it is available in your area, but it is definitely the least expensive high speed service around. Fair warning however, the price is supported by advertising, however it is a very small price to pay for high speed service.

If you combine the cost of calls you will be surprised. We were spending about $100 per month all up on dial up. Since I switched to ADSL that has been reduced to $55 for the ISP fees only.

NetZero/Juno seem to have the best access numbers, actual speeds, and rates I've seen--they also offer the "high speed" options (not true high speed, partially load graphics but speeds up connection significantly) as well.
