    My brother is 73 years old and just moved into a retirement home. He is of clear mind and physically well but has only enough money for the facility fees and food - he lives in Bismarck ND.

    He was given a pretty nice 15" Dell Laptop and would really like to use Skype. The laptop doesn't have a built-in web-cam but I would buy him a good one.

    The big problem is where he lives doesn't provide free WiFi or free cable or satellite dish for his TV.

    Can anyone recommend a company that might provide Internet service/email account(s) that would be free or close to free for a person with his financial situation?

    Thanks
