DSL: Micron Internet Services Expands Service Coverage of New, Faster DSL Connection Speeds to Washington and Utah Customers – Company Business and Marketing
Micron Internet Services, a division of Micron Technology, Inc., announced Thursday the availability of Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL) to its subscribers in the Pullman-Spokane, Washington, and the Salt Lake City-Provo, Utah, areas. Micron is one of the first Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in these areas to offer this new service.
With DSL, using a standard telephone line and a special PC modem, a Micron customer can connect to the Internet just by turning on their computer. DSL can provide speeds up to ten times faster than today’s standard 28.8 modem. In addition, DSL provides the benefit of allowing a Micron customer to simultaneously be on the Internet and talk on the telephone. “For Washington and Utah customers waiting for faster, yet affordable Internet access, DSL is a great solution,” says Todd Chavez, Micron Internet Services’ Marketing Manager. “Previously, speeds like these were only available to companies with expensive, high-speed Internet connections. Micron now provides this to end-users at a reasonable price.” Micron’s DSL offering starts at $19.95 per month for 256-kilobit per-second connections, in addition to the telephone company fees beginning at $40 per month. Micron also offers other DSL service packages with increased speeds. It is essential the customer’s phone line is a high-quality connection capable of carrying DSL service.

Micron Technology, Inc., and its subsidiaries manufacture and market DRAMs, very fast SRAMs, Flash, other semiconductor components, memory modules, graphics accelerators, personal computer systems, and radio frequency identification (RFID) products.
