"BPS Internet Access leaks advance word of DSL service offering. DSL high speed internet access, and funding to the Linux Community, what could be better?"

"GeekCast.Com Networks let the secret leak today that their new BPS Internet Access that officially launches January 1st 2000, will also be offering Digital Subscriber Line or DSL service in 22 national markets. BPS Internet Access, and the DSL service, is a cooperative effort of GeekCast and Internet Service Providers across the US to create a fundraiser for The Benevolent Penguin Society, a Linux community benevolence organization. The DSL service is being provided with the cooperation of Pinnacle Internet and Covad Networks. GeekCast CEO Jeff Gerhardt "The launch of the Access and DSL services should get the The Benevolent Penguin Society a long way down the road to their funding goals. However, we have some other business alliances we will be announcing soon that will expand this a great deal."

"The Benchmark price of $49.88/mo for 384K/128K consumer ADSL is the initial service offering."
