ADSL - The Popular Choice!

ADSL is the most common form of DSL Internet access, and the least expensive.  It normally only takes three days to get installed.

Please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more info.  Please include your current primary phone number and your address.  We'll perform a loop qualification and get back to you with the details. 

All of our DSL services support multiple computers sharing the connection without any additional costs or equipment.

Our ADSL services use a Qwest DSL connection to our facilities.  

We can professionally install your DSL for you or we can help you with a self-install.

All DSL is Not the Same! 

Even ADSL from different providers is not the same.  While the DSL circuit may have identical specs, it's the upstream connections and, more importantly, the back-end network engineering that make the difference in performance.  Super-cheap service targeted at residential customers is very unlikely to perform as well as service from a more business-oriented provider.

Our ADSL Service is Priced Nearly as Low as the Residential Guys, and Our Service is More Business-Oriented

If you are looking for quality high-speed Internet access service at a really great price, Sonora Comm ADSL Service may be right for you!

We offer ADSL in three basic flavors:

  • The first will appeal to light Internet users who are interested in a quality, always-on connection at a very low price.
  • The second and most popular flavor is for heavier Internet users, especially if sharing the connection between multiple computers.
  • The third is for those who want the fastest connection available.

Services

Standard - 256K/256K (down/up) Service - This economical service is approximately six times faster than dialup and a 'hundred times' more convenient!  (quote me!)  Also, DSL doesn't occupy your phone line like dialup so you can make and receive phone calls while using the Internet connection at the same time.  $29.95 per month*

Deluxe - 1.5Mbps/896Kbps (down/up) Service* - Our most popular service offers reliable, high-speed Internet access for individual PCs or networks.  In conjunction with the current promotion from Qwest, this quality service is only $43.95 per month*(See Qwest or ask us for details.)

Premium - 7Mbps/896Kbps (down/up) Service* - Our fastest service offers reliable, high-speed Internet access for individual PCs or networks.  In conjunction with the current promotion from Qwest, this quality service is only $50.95 per month*(See Qwest or ask us for details.)

Features

Our standard DSL services include one e-mail mailbox with 50MB of space.  Our SonoraMail mail server offers Internet standard POP, IMAP and SMTP services as well as secure (encrypted) protocols (POPS, IMAPS and SSMTP) if you prefer to use them. 

SonoraMail includes advanced anti-spam and anti-virus filtering that you can adjust to your own needs.  The default settings are quite effective and most users never adjust a thing.

Additionally, you can use our SonoraMail Webmail.  You can access our webmail via normal HTTP or the SSL-encrypted HTTPS protocol via any Internet-connected PC anywhere.  Our new webmail is far more complete, flexible and more attractive than our old system!

Installation

You can install your DSL router yourself, or we offer on-site installation services at our standard hourly rates.

Telephone and e-mail assistance is always available.
