What Is a Dial up Connection and How Does It Work?

Answer

A Dial up Connection is a temporary, non-dedicated internet connection which is made by ordinary telephone lines through dialling an internet service provider's number. It is established by a modem which joins the computer to phone lines. When a user instigates a dial-up connection, the modem dials a phone number of an Internet Service Provider which then establishes the connection followed by several beeping and buzzing sounds.
