Configuring your DSL Modem on the various DSL Networks

including the now Famous No Wire Home Run page:

No wires to run and no DSL Filters all over the house, the Zoom X3 and X 4 DSL Modems have a DSL Microfilter built into the Modem eliminating the need for any other filters in the house.

* This method also works for any DSL Modem using one DSL Microfilter external to the Modem.

* Newer Models will no longer have the Built-in Filter

5-28-2005 U.S. drops to 16th in Worldwide High Speed Internet deployment and falling

According to the latest ITU data, we're now sixteenth. The U.S. ranking is something ITU and OECD researchers attribute to a lack of a cohesive government infrastructure policy - but free-market fans and incumbent supporters attribute to geography. The data indicates there are 11.4 broadband subscribers per every 100 U.S. inhabitants.

3-25-2005 - A sad day for the U.S., FCC says U.S. consumers must purchase Voice service from the Bell Companies to get DSL service. Broadband report

1-19-2004 U.S. drops to 11th in Worldwide High Speed Internet deployment and falling Other nations zip by USA in high-speed Net race

LaBelle Management fights a poky dial-up Internet connection every morning to see how 13 restaurants did the day before. The company in Mount Pleasant, Mich., can't get high-speed Internet to all its 46 restaurants and hotels in Michigan and Indiana because it is either unavailable or too expensive. "I dread dial-up," says tech chief Michael Reed. Far away in South Korea, consulting-business owner James Rooney surfs the Web 50 times faster than the best connections available to LaBelle. Fast Internet in Seoul is so cheap and widespread, he says, it's "like running water."

Despite its economic and political might, the USA is falling behind other nations in arming consumers and small businesses with a key economic tool: high-speed Internet access, also known as broadband. The USA ranks 11th worldwide in broadband use, according to a recent United Nations report, behind such places as South Korea, Hong Kong and Iceland.

Spreading fast Internet access in the USA is so critical to long-term economic might that TechNet, a group of top U.S. tech CEOs, says it's the 21st-century equivalent of landing a man on the moon. "I'm just amazed how far behind we are," says Sung Won Sohn, chief economist at Wells Fargo.

South Korea's $50 billion program first linked 80 major cities and towns with superfast cable. Then, the government launched high-speed video services, such as telemedicine.

In the USA, broadband has been slowed by a patchwork of federal and state regulations.

Moreover, major phone companies didn't want to invest in broadband because they feared the FCC would force them to lease lines to high-speed rivals.

Within two years, he hopes all of LaBelle's properties have high-speed service.

By then, he can only imagine how cheap and widespread it will be in places like South Korea.

Testimonials

1-8-2004

Dave,

Just thought I would fill you in on the X5 Zoom ADSL. The unit is working like a champ.
As you know I purchased this unit as a replacement for an actiontech unit that was given to me as part of my QWEST DSL hook up. The actiontech unit was a supreme disappointment. The unit kept crashing and was generally unreliable.
The ZOOM ADSL X5 modem is just the opposite. It has been running non-stop since it has been installed. I have yet to re-set it. This is how a product should work...

I have several friends getting in on the DSL wagon here soon and I will be telling them that the ZOOM modem is the way to go...

Thanks for you time and your assistance,

Take care and the best to you and yours this new year,

"BIG" John Gonzales
