Prepaid dial-up as broadband backup

I found a prepaid dial-up ISP called Maglobe, and I'm writing this blog post with it, via my laptop modem. The speed is surprisingly usable. Sorta.

I'm going to use this as a backup when my broadband connection goes down. I'm pretty sure Maglobe is legit as it was mentioned in a 2001 LA Times article. I paid $15 for 28 hours—it expires after a year. Works in the US and Canada.
