    I worked at a call center in high school when dial up started becoming available to everyone. I remember setting up one customers internet service where he was going to have to pay 22 cents a minutes long distance charges and he didn't care. And that was for 28.8k.
    Buddy ended up getting his connection rerouted to a Russia line while looking at porn and ended up paying international charges that were outrageous.
