If you are using the laptop to put this question, then you are already on the Internet.

Or, if you already have a dial-up connection, just open Internet Explorer.

Your friend with his laptop is doing himself no favours by insisting on staying with dial-up.

I may be wrong but have this feeling that modest BBand without frills can cost less than persisting with dial-up.

It may depend on what age and facility the laptop has.
For instance a newish one will already have LAN connections, but no dial-up modem any more, in which case there is no reason to revert to the technology of a decade ago.
