Heh Then if they offer Dialup, you still better off finding Dialup service from say..... Netzero, AT&T, and such which offer probably a better dialup service then Earthlink and it be cheaper.
Now I had Dialup with Earthlink years ago and it was good except for the problem in which Earthlink never sent out a bill, you were often cut off because Earthlink dont want to print a piece of paper and send out to you, but Earthlink of then and now is far different.
its no surprise to me they are dying when;
#1 Your DSL Service sucks
#2 you charge twice as much as the competition
#3 Your required to have active phone services in most areas, then it has to be certain phone service.
#4 Your tech support is based in India, and they dont even have enough knowledge to turn on a PC probably.
Thats the recipe to failing.
