Is a dial-up account included with my service?

In order to keep customer costs down, we do not offer a free dial up account with our DSL service. However, we can provide dial-up service as an additional monthly service for a nominal fee. If you are going on vacation or are away from home on an occasional basis, we can also provide you with temporary dial-up access. Please contact us and provide the time frame you will need the dial-up access and the area code you will be calling from and we will be happy to provide a temporary account.

Do I have to load software on my computer?

No additional software is needed to use our DSL service. All connections are hardware based with the use of a router. Windows XP, Vista, Mac OSX, and Linux users may connect directly with a modem. The necessary software for this type of connection is already built into the Windows XP, Vista, Mac OSX, and Linux operating systems. Older operating systems, such as Windows 98, 2000, and ME require a router which will have the PPP software built in.
