Page 1 of 1
1stUp.com powers ad-supported free access offerings, including AltaVista FreeAccess and FreeWorld by Excite@Home. AT&T Canada's network has added a new pool of Internet dial-up numbers in Canada that are available to 1stUp.com-affiliated users.
1stUp.coms relationship with AT&T Canada increases the reach of its ISP presence to coverage in Canada, and confirms that the free-access trend is spreading, according to Charles Katz, president and chief executive officer of 1stUp.com.
"This agreement will allow 1stUp.com, through their relationship with AltaVista, to leverage our high-quality Internet access and transport networks across Canada," said Ron Close, president, AT&T Canada Internet and E-Business Services.
With 1stUp.com, users keep a small, sponsored navigation bar on their screen for the duration of their online sessions, in exchange for free Internet access.
