    As was said before, you can't.

    I'm still on dial-up (same as you, we can't get anything else out here), so DON'T BUY ANY OF THAT CRAP THAT ADVERTISES DIAL-UP SPEED UP! NOTHING WILL WORK, unless maybe you plug your modem into the back wall of your server

    You non-Australian people out there may not realise, but 1 way satelite costs around $60 - $80 a month, which really isnt too bad if you can use it, but 2 way cable, ended up costing around $300 AUD for the first month (including installation) and then around $170 per month thereafter.

    Internet here is extortion, I heard that in Canada, you can get free installation on 2 way cable which then costs around $15 - $30 (AUD) per month for unlimited d/ls, here, it usually costs us more than than for Dial-Up and that's after you buy your modem, install it or have it installed and find the right plan. If you're rural enough, you can pretty much forget the internet, if you live 45 minutes from the coast, you may be able to get 1 way satelite or 2 way satelite if you really want to push it, but ADSL, forget it.

    Telstra just got sued a while ago for advertising ADSL for rural Australia, then not delivering, probably ate 1/4 a million out of the billion dollar yearly profits, must hurt.

    Oh, and ISDN is only available to schools, Telstra executives and maybe other executives of other Internet companies.
