Frequently Asked Questions
Dial-Up is a method of connecting your computer to the Internet using a modem and a phone line.
A modem is an electronic device that converts digital data from a computer into a form suitable for transmission over telephone lines, and incoming signals from the telephone line into a form that can be recognized by the computer. Modems are available as external devices and as internal cards.
You'll need a web browser, an e-mail program, and an Internet dialer. Computers meeting our minimum system requirements come with this software pre-loaded. Our technical support can walk you through setting this software up over the phone, getting you on-line in minutes.
If you are purchasing a new modem, we recommend a V.92 56K modem. Most computer retail outlets sell modems of this type.
Propel Accelerator is a service that increases web and e-mail downloads. It works by compressing web pages and e-mails before sending them to your modem. The result is an increase in speed of up to 500%.
You can download Propel Accelerator from our web site. After connecting to the Internet, go here. Propel Accelerator is also on our setup CD-ROM.
All dial-up plans have an idle timeout of 20 minutes and a session limit of 8 hours. This means that if your connection goes unused for 20 minutes or stays connected for 8 hours in a row, we will disconnect you automatically. You can immediately reconnect after being disconnected.
Our Flat-Rate, Dual-Channel, and LAN-On-Demand ISDN plans have an excessive usage limit. If you are on one of these plans, you will never pay more than the flat-rate you have agreed to. However, these plans cannot be used to access the Internet 24 hours a day. We define excessive use as six times the average. If the average use of our Flat-Rate accounts over a month is 60 hours, then the excessive use limit is 360 hours. That's 12 hours a day -- a lot of use. If you must be connected to the Internet 24 hours a day, we have a Dedicated access plan available for that purpose at a slightly higher charge.
Complete details on plan limits are in our Terms of Service.
