Rocky Mountain to Speed Up Service

Rocky Mountain Internet Inc. plans to offer high-speed access utilizing Digital Subscriber Line technology beginning Nov. 1.

The DSL service is designed to offer a dedicated connection with bandwidth of either 256 or 512 kilobits per second. The company did not detail pricing.

To provide the service, Rocky Mountain Internet is working with U S WEST's !NTERPRISE Group's MegaBit Services unit. U S WEST acts as a hub, with its access link transmitting data from RMI customers' standard copper telephone lines through an Asynchronous Transfer Mode network directly to RMI.

"We are excited to offer this new high-speed solution to our growing customer base," said Douglas H. Hanson, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Rocky Mountain Internet. "We have recently had a record third quarter for dial-up service in what has been historically an industry-wide slow time, therefore we are anxious about DSL's sales potential to our company."
