I did a little research on internet access and found a site that compares the different ISPs and has tips and helpful articles for people looking for an internet connection or service provider. I went to the site www.getisp.info to read information and compare deals for high speed satellite connections, broadband DSL service, wireless ISP providers and cable companies and although the site is a little busy and hard on the eyes, it has some great information.
I read through the information on dial up ISPs, which is traditionally the cheapest way to get online. The site reviewed the top 4 dial up providers, which is a real time saver.
There was also a link for free internet access, and bargains for broadband internet through companies like Verizon that only charge $12.99 per month. So surely we can find a way for my friend to get online at low or no cost.
