V.90 now operationalArgoNet has completed the implementation of our expanded range of services which now include ISDN (64K), 56K X2, K56flex and the new V.90 standard. To take full advantage of the 56K and ISDN services the correct dial-up telephone number must be used. Flash upgradeable 56K modems can be upgraded by visiting the manufacturer's Web site and downloading the appropriate file. Acorn users with Dynalink/MagicXpress flash upgradeable modems can download an upgrade program from our support website.
Even faster Web serverThe migration of our hosted Web sites to our new London-based server is progressing and all the users should be moved in the next few months. Sitting directly on the Internet backbone, ArgoNet's Sun Ultra2 server will help us to continue providing a high speed service (ArgoNet came second, ahead of Demon and UUnet, in the recent 'Internet.Works' server download tests).
