Top quality dial-up Internet connections are the core of any Internet Service Provider's offerings, and ours is no exception. Through our nationwide network, we offer a complete array of fast and reliable dial-up connections. Our dial-up accounts feature unlimited, flat-rate billing, complete unfiltered access to the Internet, email, and Usenet newsgroups, and fast connections up to 56K in most areas. Another unique feature of our dial-up accounts is Unix shell access, allowing you to telnet to our server and perform tasks like reading and sending mail, browsing newsgroups, editing web pages, and many other things. All of our dial-up accounts by default support the standard PPP protocol for connecting, but on our Virginia network, we have the flexibility to offer text-based access, and the less widely used SLIP and UUCP protocols for specialized connectivity needs. Dial-up ISDN is also available in many areas, making high-speed dial-up access a reality. Dial-up accounts are available on a prepaid basis, simplifying billing and offering savings over monthly billing. Below you will find the account categories and features.
