BAMnet - one of the original "metered" internet
access providers where access to the Internet is based on
per-minute costs, not a monthly fee payment. Nearly all other Internet access providers charge a monthly fee for service.
1994, the founders of BAMnet designed a telecom product
that served "metered" Internet Access to rural
sections in the United States. This innovative design lowered the costs for people
who did not (and in many cases still do not) have local
dial-up access to the Internet. In using BAMnet's 1-800
dialup network, the rural customer no longer paid a monthly
access fee, and their long distance toll charge was reduced
to a lower cost as well.
1998, the company expanded and incorporated as an Interexchange
telecommuniations (IXC) provider and launced 10-10-2000,
the Nation's first 10-10 style Internet access product.
The per-minute costs were charged to a user's local phone
bill as a toll call.
time to "travel" has come!
the early summer of 2001, demand for BAMnet's "metered"
access services started shifting towards people who travel.
It did not take long for the officers of BAMnet to see a
new opportunity. So they set on a mission to enhance all
internal processes and expand the Company's reach to include
access from Hotels, RV Parks, Rest Stops, or just about
anywhere a person may need the Internet while on the road.
Today's lineup of services include the original 1-800 dialup product, plus dialup numbers in 47 countries. In addition to dialup services, the company has expanded to include Wi-Fi Internet access services in 16 countries.
