4 - How does the Dual Modem Account double your speed?

It operates on the same principle as ISDN. But with our dual account, you're not restricted to using a bonded modem, you can use a bonded modem such as a Shotgun modem from Diamond Multimedia or you can use two separate modems. They both have their advantages and disadvantages. This account requires 2 phone lines.  Back to Top

5 - How can you have Access Numbers all across the US & Canada?

We indirectly buy access from three backbones, GTE, Frontier, Global Center, and Intermedia Communications.  This gives us incredible access coverage.  Back to Top

6 - I have access with another ISP. I would like to switch to Savy2k but, I don't want to lose a lot of customers because my E-mail address changed.

This really isn't a problem. First, if you have your own Domain Name your E-mail address won't change, because when we put your site on our server, we will file the necessary documents with Inter-NIC to point your incoming E-mail and website requests to our server. Your E-mail address will still be [you@yourdomain.com]

If you don't have your own Domain Name, first we can help you get one for only $60 for the first 2 years. However, if you don't want to get a Domain Name, you can have your current provider forward your E-mail for a while. If they won't do that then you need to get away from them as soon as you can because you deserve better service than that. And in the future when you need to change servers because you are growing or for whatever reason, you will have even more of a headache then. We will be happy to send to your customers a change-of-address notice in their E-mail. All you have to do is give us a list.  Back to Top

7 - I have been told that I can get free Internet Access, why should I pay for it if I can get it free?

First, I would like to caution you that no one does anything without some kind of motivation. Some people do things to help the community and the only thing they receive is a thank you. That is their movation. They feel good helping others and they are helping themselves by improving their community. That, however, isn't the reason some companies offer free Internet access. As a matter of fact, no monthly bill is about the only benefit to these Plans. I told you that I would build a page to help you weigh the pros and cons of free access, well I started to but it just got longer and longer so let me try this.

  1. The companies that offer you free access want to put an ad on you browser screen. They compare it to an ad at the web sites you visit. It's not, it is on your screen, and you can't get rid of it while you are on their access.
  2. When you sign up for their service, you have to give them a lot of personal information. You can expect that information to be sold to every marketing agency that has the money to pay for it.
  3. Most of the ones I checked out said that they reserve the right to change their agreement at any time. They promised not to ever start charging for access but they had to put that in there for legal purposes. If they never charge you why does that have to be there? I know of no law that says you have to give yourself a way out of an agreement. If they do start charging you, how do they make up for selling your information?
  4. I sent a bunch of questions about the ad on the screen and the privacy issue and the disconnects, etc. to 12 free access companies on Jan 10, 2000. I have yet to hear from them. I will keep you posted.
  5. If you don't mind having your information sold and if you don't mind having an ad on your screen and if you don't mind being disconnected everytime you step away from the computer, you can make more money just by using one of the services that pay you for being on the net. One I looked at pays you up to $1.20 an hour. That beats $15 a month all the way. And you can still surf the net or play games anytime you want without the ad by just not signing on to their service.

8 - I am on AOL and I like it, I just don't like the toll calls and I get a lot of busy signals. Can I use Savy2k to access AOL?

Yes, you can use Savy2k to access AOL and save money too. AOL currently charges $9.95 per month for their services if you BYOA (Bring Your Own Access). That is $12 off their full service price of $21.95. If you are paying for toll calls or are using AOL for only a few hours a month, you could save money by using Savy2k and you wouldn't have all the busy signals. We have plans that start as low as $10 per month. You could save $2 per month right there. Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to do it.  Back to Top
