"Proving that the First Linux ISP is Still the Best, BPS announces it is today passing two major milestones. Now offering Dial-up service to OVER 1000 communities in the US, and international service in Canda and Japan."

BPS Internet Access a partnership of GeekCast.Com Networks and Pinnacle Internet was the first ISP in the world focusing on the Linux community and fundrasing for good works projects in the Linux community.

BPS Internet Access is a cooperative effort to create a fundraiser for The Benevolent Penguin Society, a Linux community benevolence organization. In the words of Geekcast CEO Jeff Gerhardt "you have to get Internet service from somewhere, you might as well get that service from someone that is going to help the Linux Community achieve their goals, and give you a great deal on a great service to boot. The Benchmark price of $17.00/mo for unlimited single channel (56/64kbps)analog or ISDN and $29.00/mo for unlimited dual channel (112/128kbps) analog or ISDN service is very competitive. There is also a Passthrough service for those pople who only want access and get their services (email, web host, etc) from some other source, that is available for $12.00/month single channel or $24.00/month for dual channel service. Details on the service and a sign up form can be found at the BPS Access Web Site."
