ISP Fest '96

11/12/96 RMIUG Meeting - ISP Fest '96

The November 12th meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) will feature a panel of Internet Service Providers (ISP's) in Colorado.

These companies offer individuals and businesses access to the Internet worldwide computer network, similar to the way phone companies offer telephone connections. The panel will be discussing service options, prices, and will answer extensive questions from the audience. We have had two other ISP-fests (Jan/95 and Sep/95) ... and with a smaller panel, we hope to be able to hear how things are changing for "ISP's" as the Internet becomes increasingly competitive and big companies such as MCI and AT&T are entering this market.

ISP's participating include:

  • E.Central (Ted Pinkowitz, tap@ecentral.com) $SPONSER$
  • Eazy.Net (Terri Richardson, terrir@eazy.net) $SPONSER$
  • Indra's Net (Shelli Meyers, sam@indra.com)
  • Stonehenge (Brian Bostwick, bostwick@henge.com) $SPONSER$
  • Supernet (Guy Cook, gcook@sni.net) $SPONSER$

Note: RMIUG appreciates the $50 donation from the ISP's listed above as $SPONSER$ to help cover the room rental and copy costs.

If you have any questions you may want these people to mull over in advance, pls either send them directly to the person above or to alek@rmiug.org.

The meeting is Tuesday, November 12th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional 6:30 pm start for informal networking and refreshments). The meeting will be held at the Department of Commerce (NIST) Building at 325 Broadway in Boulder, one traffic light South of Baseline. This facility holds 510 people. Park in the Dept. of Commerce lot, go in the main door (faces East), and find the main auditorium just to the right of the main entrance. The meeting is free and open to the public, but we will be passing the hat to defray the room rental charge we incur.

RMIUG appreciates the ongoing support from XOR Network Engineering for administration of RMIUG's electronic discussion lists & WWW site and Internet One of Boulder for sponsoring refreshments.

Consultants and companies are invited to bring Internet-related product information, brochures, and business cards which will be displayed on an information table.

There is an email mailing list set up for this group. General information can be obtained by sending an Email to rmiug@rmiug.org which will generate an auto-reply message that tells you about the lists and how to subscribe.
