CentralVA.Net: End of Dial-Up Service

Last month we sent you a letter to let you know that, effective August 31, 2013, CentralVA.Net will discontinue Dial-Up Internet Access.

While we have been extremely happy to serve our loyal customers for the past twenty years, this discontinuance is unavoidable, since the cost of providing Dial-Up Internet Access gone up, while use by customers has declined. Sadly, we are no longer able to cover the cost to provide the dial-up lines to our customers.

If you access the Internet by dialing into a conventional telephone line, this change will affect you. You will no longer be able to access the Internet through CentralVA.Net dial-up service as of August 31. All other CentralVA.Net services, however, including web hosting, FTP sites, and virtual customers, will remain unchanged.

Because we want to make this transition as smooth as possible for you, you can keep your email (emailaddress@centralva.net) until December 31, 2013 at no charge. After that date, if you wish to keep using your @centralva.net email account, you can pay the monthly fee.

If you have to use a telephone or Dial-Up service to connect to the Internet, there are several local providers that can help you secure a new Dial-Up service. Your local landline telephone provider may also offer Dial-Up Internet Service.
