Cheap dial-up options

By wayne ·
Our company has 5 locations that use 5 T-1's for data. Each one of these locations has about 5 people with laptops that are required to check email after 5pm and on weekends using a dial-up account. I don't want to pay much for these 25 people to access the Internet on off hours, but I want unlimited access in case of the incidental hefty overage, they're inevitible. What should I do? I would think I could get a simple business access number (for dialing in only) at $5 bucks/per person or less per/mo but I'm not finding one, especially w/nationwide access numbers. Help!

How about you?

I have a dial-in pool with eight modems, hooked to a TF#. It gets little use now that most hotels have broadband, but some while people are at airports etc.

Costs are minimal, and you get to keep full control.

Okay, now that's the way to go. I've been concerned w/access numbers! Why didn't I think Toll Free. Thanks, that's what I'm doing.
