Internet Service Providers
Some internet service providers linked above (such as Sympatico provided by Bell) have a dial-up facility as well as a broad band service. The advantage is that an immigrant can start with a dial-up service (maybe $20 per month) and later upgrade to broadband, without losing an existing e-mail address. For example if a consumer starts off with an e-mail address such as firstname.lastname@example.org (using dail-up) the e-mail address will stay email@example.com when the consumer upgrades to broadband internet at Sympatico.
