Our 56K modems give us fast, clean digital connections and allow for
modem speeds up to 56K. Even if you don't have a 56K modem you may
still get an advantage from connecting through the new lines, especially
if you are currently getting connections at lower than the highest speed
your modem will allow.
Even though our new modems allow for speeds up to 56K, you may not
necessarily get connections that fast even if you also have a 56K modem
using the correct 56K standard. Your actual
speed will vary according to the quality of the telephone lines between
your modem and your local telephone exchange. You need perfect
telephone lines to reach 56K speeds, but most people should be able to
get speeds between 33.6K and 56K.
Our pricing hasn't changed with the introduction of the
new modems, however we have it introduced a download
cap. For those of you on our 30 hour plans, the download
cap is 150 Mb. For those of you on our 120 hour plan the
download cap is 500 Mb. Download amounts over these
caps will be charged at 16c/Mb.
With these download caps, more than 95% of our customers
will not have to pay any download fees.
