My parents had Netzero until early last year. $9 per month was all they felt was needed, even though they would upload pictures at 10 per hour. The main reason that they switched was because the program required to run Netzero was too out-of-date for Windows 7, which caused compatibility issues. Now we have mid-range Mediacom internet, which is good enough for what I want to do.

Imagine you've spent your whole life taking pictures by spending two hours drawing what you see, and suddenly someone hands you a camera and says, "here, try this instead".

The last peope I knew who used dial-up were using those free internet services. But that' was many years ago. On another note there was a guy running a dial up bulletin board in this area just a few years ago.

Dial-Up is still the most cost-effective and farthest-distance traveling way to get internet service. 95% of the time, no amount of money could get these people better internet, as no other option exists in their area.

>Coming from somebody who was stuck in a ****** rural area and had dial-up until 2010.

Comcast REFUSES to run a line up to my house.

how did you post that on dialup?
User avatar #29 to #20 - successfully (09/19/2013) [-]
It's just the download speeds that suffer. They've had plenty of time to improve the service, plus I'm probably the only person in town running on their servers.
#30 to #29 - thatonecommunist (09/19/2013) [-]
The download speeds are how you get to the site, the only thing you have to upload is the text/image that you post...
User avatar #31 to #30 - successfully (09/22/2013) [-]
Exactly. You asked how I posted that.
