Extra Phone Line
I have a second phone line that is permanently hooked up to my computer for internet access. I paid my phone company a connection fee of Aust$173. I also pay $20 per month for this service. I was connected within a week
Most computers these days have an inbuilt modem. My computer has a 28.8 Kbps (kilobits per second) transmission speed modem. Helen's newer computer has a 56 Kbps modem, which is faster than mine. Speed is really important on the internet because speed equals "your time". But, if you have a 28.8 Kbps modem, don't worry; I have a 100-page Australian web site and a new US web site, both created and maintained using a 28.8 Kbps modem
If your computer doesn't have an inbuilt modem, an external modem costs between $99 and $400
Alternatively, there is the cable modem, which uses the same wires as cable TV and is really fast or ISDN (integrated services digital network) connections (not supported by all internet service providers at the moment)
