Tue Apr 13 11:39:38 PDT 1999 — Update the MOTD entry above – the new Focal numbers are in the POP finder at www.sonic.net/cgi-bin/pops.pl Of course, Sonic.net is not responsible for long distance telephone charges. Check with your operator to make sure that any number you use is local!
We would recommend that all customers use the POP finder at the URL above and make note of all of the numbers which are available for their use. We suggest you store the list on paper or on your local system so that you can refer to it in case of troubles with the number you regularly use.
Different numbers may yield different connection speeds due to line and equipment differences. Please try each number which is available for your location and use the one which gives you the fastest speed. Many customers are able to almost double their speed by doing this testing, so we certainly encourage it!
Again, remember that Sonic.net is not responsible for long distance telephone charges. Check with your operator to make sure that any number you select to use is local. -Dane
