Department Modems Retired

Department Modems Retired

The CS lab has supported modems for a very long time, and today there are many viable alternatives that that were not available when the modems were installed. Considering the expense, the lab committee has decided that the time is right to retire the modems. Accordingly, as of January 30th, 2004, the modems will be retired. For all of you who will need service, there are many ISPs that provide nationwide coverage for as little as $10 per month. A good list of suggestions is; EarthLink, NetZero, AT&T, or AOL. In addition, fast access is now available in most of the triangle areas. Also Duke OIT maintains a remote access page, listing options for Duke faculty and staff.
