DELRAY BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 4, 2001

The Federation of Internet Solution Providers of the Americas (FISPA) is using its relationship with Bell South in an effort to help customers who have lost their Internet connections in the wake of the Northpoint Communications shutdown.

Many FISPA members in the eight state Bell South region, market ADSL broadband Internet access to its customers over regular telephone lines utilizing BellSouth's network technology. "FISPA Members are local ISP's with the expertise and customer responsiveness second to none. Coupled with Bell South's infrastructure, we can offer former Northpoint users the ability to get back on the Internet in record time," said Joe Marion, Executive Director of FISPA.

ISP's looking to sell ADSL (with no quantity commitment) and End Users looking to their local FISPA ADSL dealer, can find out more on the FISPA Web site or by contacting the organization at 561-266-9438.

DSL is a broadband technology that provides high-speed, affordable access for a variety of applications including Internet access, telecommuting, home office work, distance learning, video on demand and generally enhancing E-commerce growth.
