Thread: Is there Dial-Up in 2015

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Is there Dial-Up in 2015

    Sooo..

    I was cleaning my garage and found an old Laptop that has a Dial-up modem built in. I am just so curios to test the thing but I can't seem to find a ISP to just get a test account or something.

    I did find: http://www.voxmahala.co.za/ but that does not seem to work. I just want to hear that old Dial-up tone

    Anybody got an account and Dial-up number perhaps still lying around or know where I can get one?

    More than dozen of the dialup sounds by different manufacturers, unfortunately the article is in russian, but I think it should not be problem with google translate.
