ITC discontinues some dial-up modem
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
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).
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.
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.
