View Full Version : Temp OBX isp

We're headed down to Avon Sat for two weeks. Would like to have internet service on my laptop, but my isp is local only (High Point, NC). Would like to be able to email pictures of Tina's fish to friends back home !!

Is there an isp down there with temporary vacation accounts? Preferably one easy to use.

Any info is appreciated.

Many larger gas stations/convenience stores offer prepaid dialup with 800 number access.

You use up the card and then toss it.

I know they are sold in Virginia Beach close to Oceana NAS

Toppers Pizza is a wi-fi free internet access 'hot-spot'

Thanks for the info.

I'm looking for a local dial up service provider so I can access from the house where we're staying.

I use Wal-Mart's internet service.

I was down in Avon October this year and took my laptop with me. Found a local access number in Kitty Hawk.

WM Connect only cost ten bucks a month, billed to a credit card. When ever you get another isp just send them a note and they will stop service.

If the phone system is good, I can connect at 53.3 on the laptop and at home I can usually connect a 46.6

Just my .02

Got it figured out.

Thanks, again.
