V.34 and V.90 are quite familiar to me. I have a Windows 3.11 computer
here that I occasionally fire up and connect via an internal V.34 modem
(to a 20 hour/month dial up service) for the fun of it. The budget dial
up services are all but gone now.

I'm aware of V.92, but I don't think that I've ever had used that version.

I have unlimited dial-up service through this ISP at 12.95/mo (less if
you pay in advance for six or twelve months). They use an outside
company that maintains a nation-wide network of access points. I'm far
away from their office, yet I dial a local number. They also offer
newsgroups via NNTP, again through a third party.

Heh. I use a Pentium 3 running Windows 2000, so perhaps a bit later...

Yes, it's largely a vanity item, but I also use this system nearly every day for
many tasks. It has capacity for my needs and the software mix I like. So why
change? It's comfortable, like an old shoe.

The house computer is more modern and has the high-speed connection.

Which ISP? DSL Extreme?

Yes.
I had their basic DSL package via AT&T lines some time ago. I couldn't
move it to a new house with me because they grandfathered the service.
I bent AT&T's arm backwards, and they sold me a 3 meg DSL connection
that I'm using now. As I understand it, AT&T is no longer selling
standard DSL now either. Of course, I lost DSL Extreme newsgroups when
I couldn't move the service, so I use Eternal September now. I wasn't
aware that they still sold dial-up service.

I had a static IP DSL package from DSL Extreme via AT&T for over
a decade until AT&T decided to no longer support static.

I remember that package showing available from DSL Extreme not that many
years ago. Is that a recent thing they've discontinued? Presumably
only supported with a business connection now?

They (DSLExtreme) didn't discontinue my package. They contract with
AT&T in my area, and AT&T stopped supporting static for DSLExtreme
customers. Sigh.

Can you request a business plan through AT&T for a static connection?
It might be worth looking into, even if just to price-check. I've heard
they will still sell a business connection at residential addresses.

AT&T no longer provided static IP plans to residential neighborhoods.
