AOL, Covad Offer AOL High-Speed Powered by Covad ADSL 6.0

AOL LLC and Covad Communications Group Inc., a national provider of integrated voice and data communications, today announced that consumers now will be able to access the AOL service with Covad’s ADSL 6.0 high-speed broadband access product for as low as $39.95 per month.

Residential users increasingly will adopt high-bandwidth data services as they accelerate their move away from dialup, according to Parks Associates, an industry and consumer research firm. “By deploying Covad’s ADSL 6.0, AOL positions itself to take advantage of the residential user’s increasing interest in high-bandwidth data access for applications such as online gaming, streaming video and downloading music,” said Kurt Scherf, vice president and principal analyst at Parks Associates.

Key features of AOL High-Speed with Covad ADSL 6.0 include high-speed access with download speeds of up to 6mbps and up to 768K upstream; plug-and-play installation; 24×7 customer service via phone, e-mail or instant message; safety and security tools; AOL-exclusive and original programming such as commercial-free radio, streaming video and music; and unlimited e-mail and picture storage on AOL.
