I just bought my first computer in a while, and I signed up to have the fastest DSL that AT&T was ready to rock my world with.
Turns out, they don’t offer it in my area, but Verizon does. I called Verizon, and the switchboard, three houses down from me that runs the whole town, is full and can’t accept any new users at this time.
I am having to use dial up through Copper Dial-up. Its super cheap, but this computer didn’t have a modem. I went to eBay and bought a floppy looking USB V92 56k modem that the phone line will pop into.
What am I going to be able to do on the internet, and how do I need to adjust my browsing habits to help with it? I am going to be using Windows 7/Ubuntu and Firefox as the browser.
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
