A horrible, extremely slow internet connection. With dial up your phone and computer use the same line.
Dial-Up:

Susie- I tried to call you but the line was busy!
Jane- Sorry, I was on the computer.
Susie- o_O

Slow medium for connecting to the Internet, which some people STILL use because:
1. They can't afford broadband (understandable, unlike the following)
2. They don't know about other ways to connect
3. They've been brainwashed into thinking AOL is number one
I'm surprised dial-up isn't free.

1) A piece of shit way to connect to the internet which offers the following services of disconnections, slow downloads, and/or high blood pressure that results in loss of temper.

2) See aol or hell.

an internet connection that doesnt allow the people using it to talk on the phone at the same time, if you call someones house while their on dial-up internet you will recieve a sound so horrid that it will make your ears bleed.
it sounds like a robot being tortured.
Online Conversation:

Pete- Sup dawg?

MikeG- my fucking ears are bleeding!

Pete- Yo dawg that sucks, why they bleedin?

MikeG- because i just tryed to call your house but your pov ass family has dial-up!

a slow and fat asshole who stops moving when a phone is ringing for no apparent reason. He has been proven to be mentally retarded and gay. For some reason he gets viruses constantly. He makes strange beeping noises when he wakes up again for no apparent reason. Although he doesn't spend that much money, he still isn't worth living. Other retards like him.
Man, that dial up is one slow piece of shit!!!
