We all know that most free ISP's stink, with high pings, and low speeds....

However, I have tried really hard to find some good ISP's and try them out,
So here they are...

http://www.freedialup.org/
Important quotes from site

Currently our commercial service area includes Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Southern Florida. This service is made possible due to excess capacity on our modem pools as well as to support internet community.


We have a few restrictions. First we blocked access to SMTP (Outgoing Mail Server) port, so you can not use your email client to send mail. We have also blocked port 119 for newsgroup access. This is because we don't want any spammers abusing our service.

How do I connect to FreeDialup?
Setup a dialup networking (DUN) to call one of our numbers. Use your phone number as your username and your password.
New Hampshire (Main Site):

603-371-5050

Massachusetts:

617-313-4444

The spoilers aren't working. I think because there's too much text inside them.

Fast Free Dialup has access in NewJersey and I think maybe New Hampshire too. I have tried that and that had better speeds compared to metconnect.

If you have ADSL contact your ISP, they probably will offer you dialup for free...

@harrykid

Yea, if they don't have an access number in your specific town/city, try the one closest to you (for lower pings) go ahead, give it a shot!
