iDSL is Now Available
April 17, 2000 12:00pm
Sound Internet can now support iDSL via USWest. iDSL is for USWest customers that do not qualify for DSL at their home or business because of distance issues. A more expensive service on the USWest side (not SCC), iDSL allows for 144k Internet connections. For more info, you can check out our iDSL page at http://www.scc.net/products/idsl.
DSL Downtime Scheduled
April 10, 2000 12:00pm
System Outage Notice
At 12:01am on Thursday, April 13th, Sound Internet and USWest will begin migrating our DSL customers to our new DS-3 carrier line. Neither USWest or Sound Internet expects the cutover to take all night, but we are told to provide a window until 8am on the morning of Thursday, April 13th.
The purpose of this downtime and the new DS-3 circuit is all part of a major fiber optic upgrade we've been planning over the last year. The new circuits will provide much much more bandwidth for both our DSL service and internet connections.
After 8am, everything should be back to normal. We are trying to make this as painless as possible for you and noone should have to make any changes to their configurations unless otherwise notified.
