Unlimited dial-up access for about 3 weeks a year

  jacksony 07:58 06 May 2006

Hi there,

I currently live outside the UK but I come back to the UK to see my parents for a week’s holiday, and I do that about three times a year.

My parents don’t use the internet at all. But when I come home I would like to use it for light surfing, checking my email, and updating my parent’s old computer on the Windows update site.

Does anyone know of an ISP I could use that would charge a flat rate for unlimited dialup internet access for this weekly period?

Many thanks

Hi jimv7

That site you suggested is completely free internet access? What's the catch?

There's no catch. I use click here for the occassions I require dial-up

<<< What's the catch? >>>

The "catch" is that you pay for the time online with an 0845 number. You can sign up for a "pay-as-you-go" with *ANY* ISP for no monthly fee and pay for the phone calls.

What "My Internet Pass" offers, if you don't want to charge calls to someone else's phone bill, is unlimited access via a *FREE* phone number.
