    Dodo service has either gone really bad, or i have a problem on my end. Dodo
    just gives me a busy signal %70 of the time as if they are too overloaded
    with users.

  4. Nope, no problems at all and I've been on most every day for the better
    part of the day. Eastern Melbourne suburbs.

    I lasted just two days with dodo for exactly that reason.Every time I
    dialled up I got the engaged signal.
    Too many users, not enough modems.
    Sadly in this world, you get what you pay for, unless you're with telstra,
    and then you only get half of what you pay for...
    Cough up the extra and go broadband. Waitin' to get online with dialup just
    gives anyone the prunes....

    ahh its some primitive system where users have to use their phonelines
    to ring up their isp wich then connects them to the internet, its
    incredably slow and unreliable. and it just magicly hangs up now and
    then for no apperant reason forcing them to dial in again (more money)

    I never suffered those problems with dial-up although I'd never go back
    now...

    Would if we could but can't get broadband. Too far in the country where we
    are staying right now. Do have it still connected in my Brisbane house but
    it is not being used.

    Life as a nomad does have its downs with slow dialup.

    Roll on WiFi to the outer suburbs of the cities and country towns. it won't
    happen soon enough.
