ITC discontinues some dial-up modem services

In an effort to comply with state-mandated budget cuts, the Division of Information Technology and Communication will discontinue low-speed dial-up modem services effective Jan. 31. This service is based on old technology, with top speeds of either 14.4 or 28.8 kilobytes per second.

The dial-up numbers being discontinued are: 982-5084 (30-minute limit,14.4 kbps); 243-7673 (60 minutes to unlimited, 14.4 kbps); 963-4625 (15 minutes, 28.8 kbps).

Instead, ITC is directing its resources to services for which there are no viable alternatives or commercial providers. “We strongly encourage all users to consider moving to an Internet service provider for dial-up services at this time,” ITC announced in a press release, which went on to warn that it anticipates discontinuing its 56 kbps service by the end of May.

The University has an agreement with Cornerstone Networks to offer several dial-up service packages. For more information, see: http://www.itc.virginia.edu/netsys/dialin_ethernet_services/dialup_cstone.html. For those interested in higher-speed connections, information is available at http://www.itc.virginia.edu/csd/dsl/home.html.

Questions regarding this change should be directed to itc-news@virginia.edu.
