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. Thanks. Promote this thread!
