The new two-year deal becomes effective Jan. 1. In November, WebTV said Concentric would provide increased dial-up capacity during the holiday season, when the service typically sees a large influx of new subscribers. Concentric has provided dial-up services to WebTV since July 1996. It serves owners of both the WebTV Classic and Plus set-top boxes.
Officials from both companies characterize the deal as a win-win.
"Concentric Network and WebTV Networks have been working closely together for more than two years and we are pleased to continue our relationship into the next century. We are committed to delivering high-performance network connectivity to WebTV-based customers around the country," said Mark Fisher, senior vice president and general manager of Concentric's network services division.
