RSL Rolls Out DSL for Businesses

[Toronto, CANADA] RSL COM Canada has rolled out a high-speed DSL Internet service designed for small and medium sized businesses in Ontario and Quebec.

With speeds of up to six Megabits per second, the new service operates up to 150 times faster than a conventional dial-up connection.

According to RSL, businesses have a growing need for dedicated and instant access to the Internet, and to enrich their online presence. "We are pleased to satisfy this demand with the launch of our suite of DSL services," said president and chief executive officer David Alsop.

Depending on the customer's requirements, RSL COM Canada offers a choice of an asymmetrical (ADSL) or symmetrical (SDSL) Internet connection.

In addition, the company can customize an integrated telecom bundle that includes e-mail and Web hosting, local phone service, long distance calling plans, and data networking solutions all from one reliable source.

RSL COM Canada's DSL services are currently available in the greater Toronto and Montreal areas, Ottawa, Kitchener-Waterloo, Hamilton and London, with other regional markets in Southern Ontario and Quebec to be added in the near future.

Future expansion of DSL services to Western Canada is also planned.

RSL COM Canada is the Canadian subsidiary of RSL Communications (Nasdaq: RSLC), a provider of integrated data, Internet, and voice telecommunications services to markets around the globe.
