Telecommunications company UUNet Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of WorldCom Inc., announced Tuesday that it will begin offering its customers high-speed DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), mobile and dial-up Internet access from a single account.
The program, called Access Choice, will allow companies to add new Internet access features to existing UUNet accounts and administer all users from a centralized location.
The service, which UUNet bills as ideal for travelers and telecommuters, will offer three different levels of service:
-- UUmobile 128, which will offer a 128K bps (bits per second) wireless Internet connection;-- UUlink DSL Corporate, a DSL service that will be available to corporate clients at speeds of 128K bps, 384K bps, 768K bps and 1M bps;-- UUdial Corporate, which will offer businesses Internet access at 56K bps and 128K bps.
The three service tiers will not, however, all be immediately available. UUdial is available now internationally while, UUlink is currently available in more than 50 U.S. markets, and UUmobile will be available, in at least six major U.S. cities, in the fourth quarter of this year. The company says that it expects to expand the service to 21 cities by early next year and to 46 cities by the middle of next year.
Pricing will be determined by the number of features per user, billed monthly.
