specific plans and will provide it's customers with any "reasonable"
amount of addresses.

Qwest ISDN Pricing

May 11, 1999 - Qwest has totally revamped their ISDN pricing. Both the totally metered and the 200 hour pricing plans have been discontinued. The only option available is unmetered service. The base rate is $68.00, but that does not include ANY taxes or fees.

This new price does not include Qwest installation which is $100-$200 to connect to the DMarc. That fee also does not include internal wiring or jack installation.

Type Price Mins. Incl. Each Additional Minute
Unmetered ISDN $75.00 Unmetered N/A

Cost Analysis

As always, the plan you choose will vary depending on what you plan to do with your connection. VODS and Dial-Up ISDN are recommended for putting a single PC or small LAN onto the Internet. If you are planning to put a server of some type onto the Internet or want to support a medium to large LAN, a Dedicated plan would be the best bet.

Look at how much time your line will be in use. If you are thinking about 64K service consider that you will have a free POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) port free to use as your phone line. By replacing your old telephone service with ISDN you may only be looking at a nominal telephone bill increase.

Packaged Billing Option

On many of our ISDN service plans we are now offering package billing. SCC will act as your personal telecommunications consultant with the phone company. The ISDN phone service will be included in the SCC internet bill. SCC deals directly with the phone company and handles all the technical details and billing issues.

A Word About Package Pricing
Package pricing was designed to help both our business and consumer customers get ISDN service easily. SCC takes care of all the communications with the phone company. You do not receive a bill from Qwest when you choose package pricing. Simply said, SCC becomes your personal communications consultant. Package pricing also helps you budget exactly how much your ISDN connection will cost. We've based the package price on the average ISDN caller profile. With package pricing your cost will always be the same each month.
