Adelphia Offers Traveling Data Option


RemotePipes Inc. said Adelphia Communications Corp. will use its global-roaming Internet-access solution for the MSO's high-speed-data subscribers while they are traveling.

Adelphia launched with RemotePipes' "TollFreeISP" service platform this past week, said Karl Ossentjuk, the MSO’s vice president of high-speed-Internet product management.

Adelphia Power Link users can access the Internet from more than 10,000 locations throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, and over 100 countries worldwide on a "pay-as-you go" basis.

RemotePipes said access costs vary, with local-number access in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico priced as low as 49 cents per hour.
