so please read the descriptions carefully and give us a call if you

Overview of Accounts and Options...
High-Speed Access Accounts are based on G.Lite/ADSL. They offer
speeds up to 2000k downstream/256k upstream. Accounts include multiple
email addresses, webspace, domain hosting and more. The PHSA-Plus includes
local dialup access with 2 free hours per month of National Roaming.
For your convenience, we have modems available for purchase that are
compatible with our system. These accounts, being based on DSL, are
sensitive to distance from the Verizon Central Office where our equipment
is installed. They are not available everywhere. A call to our Sales
folks can get you the most current info on availability in your area,
and check your line to see that it can carry this service.
Dialup Accounts include multiple email addresses, web space, speeds
to 56k analog/64k or 128k ISDN, web-based Email access, web-based
Account Management Tools, 2
per month of National Roaming, and more. Intermittent Dialups
remain our most popular type of account—they are reliable, accessible
throughout Vermont & most of the US via a local access number,
We also offer a very inexpensive Dial-Only
Account. This provides local dialup access, 2 free hours of National
Roaming access per month, and one email address. No webspace, hosting
or other features.
Full-Time Dialups serve a
special niche, being neither broadband nor intermittent. They have speeds
up to 128k ISDN, include multiple email addresses, webspace, domain
hosting, virtual web addressing (i.e.: www.example.com),
mail mapping, and more. These accounts are great for webcam use, or
in similar situations where the more robust broadband connection or
24/7 monitoring is not needed.
Business High-Speed Access Accounts
are based on SDSL technology. We offer 6 different speed levels, a separate
dialup account for remote access, webspace, multiple email addresses,
virtual web address, and more. These circuits are monitored 24/7 and
have pre-configured equipment available for rent or purchase. Being
DSL-based, these accounts have distance limitations relative to the
Verizon Central Office where our equipment is located. Our Sales Team
can do a quick line check to see if your line qualifies.
To round out your account, or add additional functionality, we have
Services which may be purchased separately for use with any of our
accounts (limited options for Dial-Only). These may be purchased at
the same discount level as your main account.
free access via our Referral Programs, with no limit on how much free
time you can accrue, by referring your friends, family, acquaintances
to us when you learn they are looking for an ISP. We will credit your
(per dialup or residential telephone service referral) or $100 (per DSL or business telephone service referral)
for each new customer who comes to us via your recommendation. High-Speed
Access customers should note that, since your lines have qualified for
PHSA or BHSA service, it's quite likely that your neighbors’ lines also
will qualify. The Fine Print says that they must maintain a fully-paid
account for at least 2 months for you to earn the credit, and only 1 credit per referral. The only thing
you must do is to be sure they give us your SoVerNet username or SoVerNet phone number when signing up. This ensures
that the proper account gets the credit.
Newsletters, System Maintenance, and Network Notices
We have two ways to let you know about events
affecting our network and your access. With anticipated network maintenance
and upgrades , we send email notification to your SoVerNet email address
48 hours in advance, whenever possible. These notices are also posted
to the Notices section of our website, available by clicking the "SoVerNet
Notices" button on each of these UVM Affiliates pages. The URL
The network notices are an opt-out list. To
remove yourself from this list, send a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org with
Our normal maintenance schedule calls for work, when necessary, to be
done Thursday mornings, between 6 and 7 AM. This does not happen every
Thursday, hence the notifications. This time slot was selected as it
is currently the time of lightest use on our network and causes, therefore,
the least inconvenience.
Our periodic NewsLetters are emailed to all SoVerNet customers and
are not “opt-outable.” We send them 3 or 4 times a year and
use them to let you know of events, company news, services, and products
that we feel are essential to enabling you to make informed choices
about your service with us.
By default, your SoVerNet email will be forwarded
to your Zoo email account. This will ensure that you receive notices
of network events and news that might affect your SoVerNet account,
and to keep your SoVerNet email box from reaching its quota (in
which event, mail received for you at your SoVerNet account would
bounce). If you wish to change or remove the forwarding, you may
do so using the Account Tools, or let us know and we will do it
You can signup for any account
over the phone. We can test for DSL capability if desired, while you
wait. (877) 877-2120
