Hi All,
I gavin, a self employed PC tech working in country South Australia. Believe it or not, I still have a lot of custormers on dial up, mainly because they can only get braodband via satellite, and pricing is rediculous ( although slightly improve recently.) I'm pretty much self taught, and found bleeping through combofix.

Hello Gav and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please take the time, to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.

Dial up is still used here in the US in rural areas for the same reasons.
