How to choose a dial-up Internet service provider

When selecting a dial-up ISP (Internet service provider), you will need to ask a series of questions to determine which ISP is right for you.

  • How long has the company been in business?
  • Do they offer software upgrades periodically?
  • How much is the monthly rate?
  • Are you under contract for a specific period of time?
  • Can the ISP increase the rate whenever they want?
  • Is there a limit to the number of hours you can be online without additional charges?
  • Do they have a toll-free number for connection?
  • If not, do they have a local number that will not cost you any additional charges?
  • Do they offer free email addresses with the account?
  • Do they offer SPAM blocker or virus protection?

Once you have decided on an dial up provider, read the contract and paperwork very carefully for any hidden charges and limitations.
