Page 1 of 1
MindSpring Enterprises Inc. Tuesday introduced LAN on Demand, the newest in its line of small business products that allows businesses to connect all the computers in a network through a single ISDN connection instead of using costlier dedicated links.
When used in conjunction with an ISDN router, the service will automatically connect a computer to the Internet once a user attempts to use any Internet-based application. The router remains connected as long as data is being transmitted and stops once the transmission is complete.
The service costs $99 a month and includes 160 hours of connectivity, 10 e-mail accounts, 5 megabytes of Web server space and start-up software. Additional connection time is 75 cents an hour. There is also a one-time $100 setup fee. Businesses are also responsible for setting and paying for their ISDN connections.
