I use access4free.com for backup. The first 10 hours per month are free. After that it's $1.00/hr up to a max of $10/month. They are a national ISP. Another cheap national ISP is access4less.com at $6.95/month. The nice thing about both of these is that unlike ISP's like Juno you can do a manual DUN so no ISP garbage software on your computer and they will work with any OS. Try http://www.freedomlist.com/ for even more ten dollar and under ISPs. There's even a forum to ask about various ISPs. William B.
