Ok, so this might sound redundant amongst all the fast-paced tech heads over here, but I was just wondering: how many of you still use dial-up internet, or even keep it as a 'back-up' for the days when the DSL modem just won't stop fluctuating?
My question comes from having encountered dial-up in the house of a relative while staying over there, and the fact that my cousins kept ordering WOL internet hours over their mobilink connections by sending sms to the number 965. Now, my initial reaction was of scorn, but I ended up begging them to get me an hour or two in the middle of the night just so I could check my email.
So, the question is...beyond the metropolitan areas and smaller cities where DSL has not yet taken up, is dial-up the savior of the masses??
