As far as free ISPs I'm quite sure there are still some other there. Not as easily available as it was with the NetZero and BlueLight days but I'm sure there are ad supported dial up ISPs out there if you look around. Or if all else fails you can use a free AOL trial *cringe*.

So assuming he has a modem (just about every modern laptop has one... and pci modems you can't even give away... if not, check out goodwill/thrift stores). And assuming he has a dial tone (his own line or his neighbors... we won't delve into this too much), all he really needs is an ISP or a dialup with shell.
And for that... there are still alot of. Libraries still sometimes have shell accounts you can access via modem, National providers like AOL and NetZero give away X amount of minutes every month and depending on where you live *or* who pays your long distance bill, here in Washington State we have NoCharge.com which is a free ISP. Camp all you want, enjoy the 33.6-56k goodness.
But with wifi being everywhere, you might as well buy a can of pringles and check out wigle.net to find the nearest open wifi you can use.
Assuming you are hard core tho, here's one for the bitchez....
