Internet Access Guide : Dial-Up

Most dial-up Internet access services are charged based on connection time. Some dial-up services don't require a separate subscription from the telephone service. In that case the telephone operator also acts as the ISP and the Internet fee is integrated into the telephone bill. However in most cases you have to register to an ISP, choose a subscription plan, and are given a startup disk to start using the service.
