My brother does not have the ability to have high-speed internet access at his location, so we were checking out options. He ended up choosing Netscape Internet Services from Netscape.ca … Unlimited accellerated dial-up service for $18.95 plus taxes.

Billings are on the 2nd of each month and payments are made on the 16th by my mastercard. I have now received the 3rd pro-forma invoice dated August 2, 2006 … But, here’s a screen shot of the statement of the previous two billings – which shows …
