what kind of things does your sister do on the internet? you have to convince her that whatever it is she does will be 5 million times better than what she has now...

if that doesnt work, and shes totally without knowledge of internet working, tell her that theyre going to do away with dial-up altogether very soon, and that she has to upgrade if she wants to keep her access.

Thanks for the advice.

I don't know that she does anything on the internet. My plan was ask her to get it and I would just pay for outright and hope that she learns to love like me. But I am starting a new job and paying for things is hard.

Plus I will probably have to build her a new computer out of my spare parts. Her 10 year old pink iMac won't know what to do with broadband.

Ok, I'm not a drommette, but I have some reasons to add to the list:

- Broadband allows people to be online while not tying up the phoneline. (This is good for when her brother comes to stay with her.)
- Never be knocked offline due to call waiting
- If she has TiVo, it updates faster and more regularly over broadband.
- Bigger/faster is just better sometimes and this is one of those times.

Also, might I suggest offering to split the cost with her if paying outright is too tough?

/me stops pretending to be a dromette now.
