    Who is a good choice these days? If you have an ISP you like, I'll look up the details and report back :)

    I seek:

    * Under $10/month. (I'm paying $15 now with AppleISP.)

    * Trusted, recommended company. Reliable connections and good uptime.

    * Access numbers everywhere I travel (US).

    * NO 5-HOUR CONNECTION LIMIT! I download files bigger than that sometimes. "Unlimited" usually means nothing when you read the fine print.

    * V.92 support (so my PowerBook will tell me when I have a voice call coming).

    * I don't need email (except outgoing), or web space, or "acceleration." So I won't pay extra for those.

    How close can I get to the above?, Copper, TheMacISP and PeoplePC don't cut it. Usually because of the 5-hour disconnect.

    Broadband sounds nice, but not $400+ per year nice! Not when I can download a big file overnight and have it by morning on dialup anyway. $400 for convenience? I'll put it towards a new computer :D Besides, I travel, and broadband doesn't.

    I used to work for Galaxy Internet Services way back in 2000. They were okay, but I don't know about dial-up now.

    I had good experiences with Earthlink when I used them (around the same time, in 2000.)

    There was a Boston area ISP,, but they seem to have vanished :confused: They offered just bare-bones access, no tech support!

    There was also a Mac-centric dial-up ISP .. but I forget the name ...
