    My dad just passed on a message from my mum - from Dec 1st we will no longer have the internet because she can't afford the monthly bill and she is fed up of people not be able to get through when they try to.

    So unless I get my own connection (highly unlikely unless you guys know of a cheap but good price for dial up - maybe evenings and weekends only), you will be saying bye bye to me.

    Poor lady. How about a internet service where you only pay for the time you are online, eg no subscription at all. I presume Freeserve still offer such a service.

    Will you not have net access from either a library, school/university/college etc?

    I have AOL and it's basically £15 a month unlimited access with a freephone number. Plus you get the perks of the people on AOL....i consider that a disadvantage though...I usually browse through an internet explorer window though as the aol internet has a problem with typing, it isn't as quick as me! You can still open IExplore windows while on AOL though

    School has a barrier stopping me visiting this site and the Library you have to pay (£1 an hour) for but again has a barrier for under 18s on this site (grrr!)

    Hmm... maybe we could set up a charity on your behalf, then Gordon Brown will contribute everytime we put a money in the fund in the form of Giftaid!

    Seriously though, I'd contribute a quid a month. Sure I'm not alone...

    My goodness, if it means that much to you I'll pay for an unlimited dial up for you!

    Otherwise, you'll have to be happy that you can access less. But for the sake of £5 or thereabouts for Tesco evening and weekend freebie access, you'll be fine; as I say, just holler if you're broke!

    Issues involving phoneline time mean you might have to live with a few hours offline; not so hard?
