  • Prefer to use a modem to connect.
  • Are located close to their internet provider’s central office.
Dial-up Up to 56 Kbps Dial-up service over a standard phone line.

  • Want the lowest possible cost.
  • Live in remote areas and need rural internet options.
  • Don’t need the phone and internet at the same time.
  • Use the internet primarily for email and light web surfing, not entertainment.
