I'm looking at dial-up services for my mother-in-law. They don't use the 'net for much, so even the extra $10/month for DSL isn't really worth it for them.
Most of the services I found are around the $9.95/month ballpark.
My question is this: Most of them offer "accelerated" service for a few dollars more.
Am I wrong, or is this just the pre-cacheing software accelerators that you can download for free anywhere? If so, I can set that up for them right?
Or do the ISP's have some proprietary software that works better?
I haven't been on dial-up in years, so I'm not sure what the "standard" is at this point.
I appreciate any help in advance.

|Working for an ISP in Atlantic canada, the Accelerator we use is a Proxy that degrades images to make them smaller to download getting faster download speeds. Not bad if it's free
only our's is an extra 5.95 a month
I watch approx 3-4 hours of Hulu per week. No idea what the translates to in terms of bandwidth. So, there aren't any unlimited data plans out there yet? Or at least any that support tethering.
