I say keep the dial up so you have access whenever you want. Its really not that bad until you want to download a large file or visit sites with streaming videos.

A 130MB file takes around 6 hours to download on 56K at 5.0kbps, with dial up such files are best left for a overnighter (leave it downloading overnight and it will be done in the morning). so if your mainly concerned with being able to download large files, then i would go with the broadband. it would suck to only be able to use it one day a week though.

Is there anywhere else that you could have access to high speed? somewhere like a public library that has computers or something?


You can either agree with meor be wrong.

Hmm is that not possible to have both dial up at your home and broad band at your grandma's ?

Then you may, with a distant administration program, lauch your downloads at your grandmother's home from your dial up, and then just save to removable medium (external HDD, DVD+/-RW ...) what you have downloaded there on Friday evenings.
