Well my mom cancelled her long-running dial up ISP account which she hasn't used since she got cable in 2001, but I always used on my PowerBook while I was at my dad's house (I couldn't convince her to keep it anymore). Thus I was faced with the problem of not having internet when I was at my dad's (frequent occurrence) because he doesn't have any service where he lives. Before searching for a cheap dial-up ISP to pay for myself, I googled "free dial up" for giggles, and after clicking through various pages of junk I came upon a site called Great Dial Up that claimed free dial up internet service, and a toll-free dial up access number to go with it. Skepticism aside, I signed up for an account which didn't even require me to enter an email address or verify who I was in any way. So I entered dial-up settings onto my PowerBook and it actually works - not only that, there are no pop-ups, advertisement frames... nothing! I browsed around for a while, went on AIM, everything works as expected. I'm very excited to have found this, not only to use at my dad's but to have as a back-up for when good old Comcast drops out. So my question is, how could this possibly be? From looking at their support forum, they've been around for at least a year now. I don't get how this could exist or make any money. Any ideas? EDIT: Works fine on both my Mac OS 7 powerbook and Mac OS X iMac.
