I am extending the offer for a free 56k upgrade with the purchase of a one-year or two-year 56k dial-up subscription through July. That is to say, all your remaining v.34 time will be upgraded to 56k at no additional charge with the purchase of a one or two year extension at the 56k dial access rate. The one or two-year subscription will then extend your subscription time one or two-years past your present expiration date. The 40MB disk quota that comes with a one-year 56k dial-up subscription and the 100MB disk quota that comes with a two-year 56k dial-up subscription will also be effective as soon as your subscription extension payment is received. The 56k access numbers will also support v.34 modems (28.8k/33.6k) as well as slower speed modems all the way down to 300 baud (yes I did try it). With a v.34 modem they will generally get 2-4k better connect speeds in Seattle, and even greater improvements in Tacoma. If you have not previously had a trial of the 56k service and would like a free two week trial, please apply at: http://www.eskimo.com/newuser.html Put in your existing login and password, select the 56k account type, and in the "Where did you here about us?" box, put "existing customer" or something to that effect. We now have 56k and ISDN access in 35 US states, 5 Canadian provinces, and Tokyo Japan. So even if you don't plan on upgrading your modem anytime soon or care about the additional speed you may get with your existing modem, but you travel, this may be worth while. Access is planned for the following locations: In the United States: Anchorage, Alaska Tucson, Arizona Lexington, Kentucky Louisville, Kentucky Omaha, Nebraska Reno, Nevada Buffalo, New York Syracuse, New York Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Austin, Texas Norfolk, Virginia Richmond, Virginia Virginia Beach, Virginia * There are also some locations coming to Washington state, but I don't know the details and time frames yet. In Canada: London, Ontario Quebec, Quebec Elsewhere: Hong Kong, China Sidney, Australia London, England * Actually, I don't know the time frames for any of these. When dealing with telco's and port wholesalers, these things tend to happen when they happen.
