“Increasing the performance of Internet and corporate access for
telecommuting employees is essential to achieve business growth
objectives,” said Mark Fisher, senior vice president and general manager of
Concentric’s network services division.

“ConcentricDSL Telecommute saves time and increases employee productivity
by allowing companies to place the circuit ordering, provisioning,
installation and maintenance of remote LAN access solutions in our

The Concentric IMPACT/ Partner Program provides Internet, DSL and
Web hosting solutions designed to help small to medium-sized businesses

Resellers and integrators can use the program to help sell additional

structure. A referral incentive pays out $60 to $240 for each DSL customer
brought to Concentric.

business to the next level,” said Connie DeWitt, director of marketing for

programming, and the intimidation of having to write all the content for
their own Web sites to deliver a service that businesses can use to easily
create and maintain their Web site.”
