short term internet access

by anklesca / August 13, 2009 12:59 AM PDT

I need to access my e-mail while in Florida for 2 weeks. Hotel does not have wireless set-up so I am looking for cheap dial-up service. Tried NetZero free service but it was way too slow. Any suggestions? Anyone have any experience with either Budget Dialup or Bamnet? Thanks!

You can try a company called WifiRents, I have used them before while travelling for vacation, they offer mobile broadband rentals by the week or month (no contracts by the way!) And they are way faster than dial-up. Check out their website

Hope this helps!
