About us...

We offer a quality service at an affordable price: no busy signals so you can always get on when you need to, and good transfer rates once you're connected so you don't waste time waiting for slow connections. Our help desk is always ready to help with any problems and answer any questions you may have.

Our user to modem ratio is about 7:1. However, more importantly, we are a 'no busy signals' service, meaning you can always get on straight away. This is a better indicator of the type of service you can expect than the user to modem ratio, as another provider may have the same ratio but still have busy signals e.g. if the provider is servicing a lot of high usage customers. (Please note: the Maxi Plan is not a 'no busy signals' service.)

We support 56K, both V.90 and K56Flex varieties, on all our modems. We also have ISDN access available, contact us for details.

Our available bandwidth is about 4Kbyte/second/modem. This means that even if all our modems are in use (which they never are, because of our 'no busy signals' policy) and everybody is downloading large web pages or files at the same time, you can still achieve a download speed of 4Kbyte/second. It is more normal to get download speeds as fast as your modem and the remote host will allow e.g. over 4Kbyte/second for 56K modems.
