Page 1 of 1
Stephen Bartkiw, CEO of AOL Canada said that the alliance with Bell Nexxia and UUNET Canada delivers on his firm's commitment to provide a convenient interactive online service for Canadians from coast to coast.
Through this alliance, AOL Canada and Bell Nexxia will conduct a market trial of DSL access to AOL Plus, AOL Canada's broadband product, with AOL Canada members this winter in Toronto. This DSL access will provide a direct connection to the Internet up to 30 times faster than traditional dial-up access.
Bell Nexxias broadband network support is to ensure that AOL Canada can provide service to its members with local access numbers in every province.
AOL Canada Inc. is a strategic alliance between America Online, Inc. and Royal Bank, a Canadian financial services group.
