Sympatico sympathetic to students
by MacGyver 08:30AM Thursday Mar 25 2004
The Globe and Mail reports that Sympatico is now allowing students to suspend their DSL internet service for the summer, but still maintain access to their email throughout the year. Subscribers can call 310-SURF to arrange this service.

Sympatico Seasonal Service

Is this not the Sympatico Seasonal Service that's been around for a year already? Granted, it wasn't well advertised, but still...

The one difference I see is that email accounts are not suspended with the high speed service.

Re: Sympatico Seasonal Service

It's good sales positioning, and a great way to keep students with SYmpatico year after year.

Re: Sympatico Seasonal Service

Can you confirm, shaner? Is this the Seasonal Service? If so, does this mean anyone who uses the SSS now can still access their email (from GetEmail or POP3, I guess) even when their accounts are frozen?

Re: Sympatico Seasonal Service

You know what? Sympatico has been doing this for a while anyways. Last year when my HD blew up, I suspended my account, but I could still use the getmail from work.
