I have a potential customer that would like to keep their AOL email address, but wouldn't want to pay to do so. Does anyone know if a paid AOL user can switch to their free email? -- Mike Hammett Intelligent Computing Solutions http://www.ics-il.com

2008-04-18 Thread Mike Hammett
It depends on who's paying for the IP. If the wholesale provider is using their own ATM trunks, IP networks, etc. Bell shouldn't be throttling their connections. Conversely I don't have an opinion on if it is using part of Bell's network the ISP isn't paying wholesale for. -- Mike

Yep. I have lots of customers do that. I think they just call and tell AOL they have a new broadband provider so drop the dialup, but they want to keep the e-mail. Mike Hammett wrote: I have a potential customer that would like to keep their AOL email address, but wouldn't want to pay to

You can still retain AOL, just not the transport(ie=dialup network) We have many subs that never switch their home page or email from AOL. AOL is just like Yahoo and Google except if you need connectivity, you can pay them for dial up or dsl or better yet, US. Chuck Profito 209-988-7388

802.16e is the mobile version (you can be moving). Other versions require you to stay put and not move to a different cell or even a different antenna. Try Wikipedia. It's a good start: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/802.16 I'm not so sure disappointment is a good term for the current perspective

Hype and puffery. Many non technical folks have hyped this well beyond reasonable expectations. I have seen point to multipoint NLOS 70 mile @ 50 Mbps statements made in the press. And it has been going on for about 4 years now with very little deployment. - Original Message - From:

Look for a Digi 3G WAN router. GSM, evdo, or whatever. Supports all the major players and even has non carrier specific. Be advised though. Unless your positive you can get the faster speeds don't waste your money. Best way to tell is use your cellphone. For example my ATT phone shows 3G
