March, 2012 MCN Newsletter - Fusion and Services Update

Fusion Update: We're well past 200 Fusion customers and more people every day are saving money and getting better service by choosing Fusion for their phone and DSL service.

Two announcements regarding Fusion:
  1. As of March 1st, local and long distance calling anywhere in the U.S. is now free for both business and residential customers.
  2. We're now accepting orders in phase 3 of our deployment plan. This means that nearly all customers who have DSL in our Mendocino and Fort Bragg footprint can now get Fusion service.
Fusion provides phone service and next generation DSL in a bundled package starting at $49.95 for residential customers and $59.95 with around $10 in mandated fees for each service. You can also bundle two phone lines together and get double the speed. Nearly every customer moving to Fusion service is saving money--especially business customers. And business customers, I'm happy to come and meet with you on site at your business in Mendocino or Fort Bragg to develop not only a Fusion implementation plan but to look at how you can reduce your overall phone costs using Fusion.

SecureLink: More and more people are using wi-fi connections in hotels, coffee shops, and Internet cafes when they travel. But you never know who else is on the network or what they are doing. SecureLink isn't for everyone so if you don't use wi-fi hotspots, hotel networks or other connections away from your home connection, then you can stop here. But if you're looking for additional security when you travel with your laptop or use other networks, Securelink may be the solution for you for $5.99 per month or $60 for the entire year. SecureLink is a wi-fi security product that protects all of your data by encrypting it at your laptop and away from the prying eyes of anyone on that network. You simply install the software on your computer and enable the service with MCN. All of the information you send to or from the Internet is then encrypted and sent to our Santa Rosa data center where we unencrypt it and send it to or from the Internet for you. It creates a personal VPN for you. This keeps prying eyes away from your data whether it's e-mail, instant messages, or what websites you are looking at.
