For the past 15 years I've been writing my friend, he would always ask me to look up important information from the internet so that he, or a colleague, can spend their time wisely. I'd send it too him fast and without a problem. I feel like a secretary, but I enjoy it. I would like to start a service business for people who are incarcerated and have limited access to the internet , but I might be in way over my head. What do you guys think?

I think its a great idea but honestly i don't think they would allow that and i dont think inmates would pay for it. I might be wrong. They aren't supposed to have access to the internet and i would imagine that it could be abused to look up victim information, Etc. each prison is different on what is allowed, even within the same state. I think it would become a nightmare to manage. Id be interested to read other opinions.

You have a good point with it being hard to manage. My friend told me this one story about his room mate asking his brother months ago about info on correspondence courses. It took only a few days when he asked me. It was just something I was thinking about doing on my spare time.
