free internet access

  [DELETED] 11:36 25 Dec 2003

between christmas and the new year, I am going to be without any access to the internet, as I go from one broadband house to another in January...

Which pay as you go internet service providers for simple dial up access offer a simple download of software then access the internet for a week or so, then I stop using them?
Any ideas etc are as usual gratefully received.

why not pick up one of the many free trial discs dotted all over the place ie garages/supermarkets.

I find if you use a disc, it put loads of other unwanted stuff on your PC.

Have a look at Freeserve No Ties click here It's a long time since I used this (I'm now on Anytime) that I can't remember all the steps to setting it up but I think you can configure and existing browser to use it. Alternatively pick the Freeserve CD from any DSG outlet.

No disrespect to Big Elf, but I would be against using a Freeserve disc. The method on the link that I sent you is straight forward and I have used it many times setting it up for others.

Have a good Xmas all.
