Toronto Free-Net (TFN) provides 56 kbps graphical PPP dialup Internet connections for you to enjoy the Internet with full colour images. This lets you access email, the World Wide Web, and other Internet services, using popular software programs such as Eudora, Netscape, and ICQ.
Though this service is terribly slow by the standards of 2010, it is very economical so it continues to be popular. Please be aware that dialup isn't sufficiently fast to support heavier content such as movies, audio recordings, streaming Internet radio, streaming video such as from YouTube and NetFlix, graphical online games such as Doom, World of Warcraft, etc, and VoIP telephone (Voice over IP) such as Skype and Magic Jack. Applications that use the Internet for such content will simply not work over dialup.

Examples of such websites include Gmail, Facebook, newspapers, and banks.
