Hi
I do not know what is their concoction of High Speed Dialup is. Since their
is No standard High Speed DialUp, their own concoction software probably was
not upgraded by them to work with Vista.
In any case your best bet is to look for Wireless Internet, or satellite
Internet.

High speed dialup is usually a sort of caching program for the OS. It starts
downloading the pages from the links on the webpage before you click on
them, making it seem faster. While the connection itself isn't faster, the
browsing speed is. However, their software probably isn't Vista compatible
yet.

You may look into satellite (which can be slow at times), or wireless (if
available in your area).

There is usually more to it. Many work with the ISP's server and will
compress graphics into fuzziness to reduce their size.
