Citing a successful relationship so far, Concentric Network Corp. today announced it renewed its contract with Intuit, Inc. to provide Internet services for certain Intuit customers for an additional three years.

The agreement supports existing and new Intuit customers who register for Concentric's value-added IP services through current versions of Intuit products, including Quicken, TurboTax and QuickBooks. Intuit has offered its users Internet access through Concentric since 1995.

Concentric will also support older versions of Intuit products and will offer special access and pricing plans and private-label customer support, the company stated.

"Intuit has been a great business partner for almost three years, so we are extremely pleased to renew our relationship with them," said Henry R. Nothhaft, chairman, president and CEO of Concentric Network. "We have provided thousands of Intuit customers with Internet service and customer support, and look forward to offering first-rate service to even more users."
