Someone on a low fixed income might have a difficult time incurring an 
additional monthly expense.

Rather than a dedicated DSL line, have you considered suggesting wifi?

Legalities and security aside, there are numerous open wireless access 
points setup by individuals, but there's also Meraki, who is attempting 
to bring free wifi to all of San Francisco. Meraki states that they are 
OS agnostic.

I have no direct experience with Meraki, but it might be no-price option 
for your new Xubuntu user.
