Networks Inc.
has introduced three new services it says will give business
customers and organizations alternatives to pricier communications services.
Cognigen recently debuted ShopForT1.com, an Internet portal offering real-time
delivery of price and availability estimates to prospective T1 and DSL clients;

functionality in most areas where it is offered in the United States and Canada;
and TollFreeISP, for prepaid global Internet access for travelers.

NTT/Verio Inc. has
launched a channel reorganization initiative that will combine the
small-to-medium enterprise (SME) and larger, midmarket-to-enterprise programs
under the viaVerio name. The initiative includes two programs. Enterprise Fast 50 allows new partners that secure new Verio business in
either enterprise hosting or access to earn up to 50 percent of the first months
revenue from each sale in addition to any regular commission payments. The Mega Migration program offers tiered bonus incentives to SME partners
that move shared, virtual private server or managed private server hosting
accounts to Verio. Both promotions continue through Dec. 31.
