I am asking this on the behalf of my friend. Here is the situation.
She lives in a internet black hole. She has a dinosaur computer, and only has access to dial up. Cable and fios has not been run to her area yet.
Satellite is too expensive. Single mom with two kids.
So someone suggested a phone with internet access. Problem is, she has a contract with Verizon that doesn't end for another year. Verizon told her
that it would be 500 bucks to change the plan adn upgrade and for a new phone.
I am surprised that they would charge her to break a contract instead of just upgradign it.
We are trying to figure out any internet option, and the cheapest way to do it.
