    Just find a local service provider, look up numbers and dial one using a terminal program. See if you get some kinda login prompt. Type something to see if it sends characters.

    I did a quick search and found a list of toll-free(not all of them, mind you) numbers you can call on your modem to test. If you can connect, read and send, you're in business.

    The super easy way is to use the Microsoft ISP finder.
    This dials an 800 number, to give you the current lineup.
    Free and easy way to check everything.

    There are "AT" commands to test - you use the loopback so you won't need to connect to an ISP or anything else. Can test quite a few things this way.
