1/19/01To all of our valued customers,
Over the course of the last six years we have worked hard to provide you with low cost, high quality Internet access. We are one of the few remaining independent ISP's, and we value greatly our customers, our employees, and our community. We are proud to say that we have avoided many of the pitfalls that have forced some of our larger competitors out of business or to sell out.

Due to the ever-changing market conditions, we are raising our prices to $11.95 per month, for month-by-month service. We will still offer the $9.95 rate for those who choose to prepay six months or one year in advance.

5/21/99 Mass. DTE Internet Call Decision
In response to the Massachusetts Dept. of Telecommunications decision to classify Internet calls as interstate calls, we would like all of our customers to know that we do not expect this to impact upon our low pricing of $9.95/month for unlimited Internet access.
