MindSpring Introduces LAN On Demand

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.
