* Apptix ASA gas introduced
High Volume Messaging, a private-label solution for cable companies, regional
ISPs and larger carriers to offer consumers and small business customers
messaging services, based on Microsoft Exchange 2000. Services include e-mail
(POP3), customized Web mail, personal Web pages, instant messaging and short
message services among other features. Mailboxes cost 50 cents to $1 each
wholesale and retail for $1 to $2. The solution includes private branding on
subscriber Web sites, domain names, documentation and self-administrative
interfaces. The platform can be hosted in either Apptix’s data center or a
service provider’s facility.

* MegaPath Networks Inc. has
added business-class cable broadband services to its portfolio of DSL, T1 and
ISDN broadband circuits as a result of a resale deal with Time Warner Cable
Inc.. Available immediately in 44 regional service areas in the United States,
the cable service is priced at $79.95 per month complete with either static or
dynamic IP addresses that can support virtual private networks (VPNs) for secure
high-speed business connectivity.

* Covad Communications Co.
signed a five-year wholesale agreement with America Online Inc. to provide
consumer DSL services to the No. 1 ISP. AOL also plans to own a stake in Covad,
which issued warrants to the ISP to buy 3.5 million shares representing 1.5
percent of common stock.

Kaufman Bros. analysts said they
anticipate orders being provisioned in the fourth quarter with a greater volume
of orders early next year, adding that AOL would tap Covad’s DSL footprint to
market service to about half of its 31 million dial-up customers.

AOL is not Covad’s only huge
wholesale customer. The company has partnerships with AT&T Corp., SBC
Communications Inc. and Sprint Corp.

* Under a new wholesale agreement, EarthLink
Inc. will broaden its dial-up coverage by accessing the Internet through the
StarNet Inc. MegaPOP network in more than 2,900 locations in the United
States and Canada.
