There are usually two or three commercial internet services in every
large community. I, myself, pay Xmission, a local business in Salt Lake
City, a monthly fee (theirs is $19/month or $17/month for 6 months) to
use their internet access. They have many subscribers. Sometimes it is
difficult to even dial in.
Tell your friend to inquire with the university people who run the
server, they will probably know of other services available. They will
have alredy received many inquiries about this and will likely be quite
knowledgable. That is the way I found Xmission.
