Receiving Calls While Online!
One of the biggest complaints of dial-up customers has to be that they can't
use their telephone or receive telephone calls while online. Over time several
solutions have been developed to address this problem.
Allowing your telephone to ring while you are online using the Internet is
somewhat complicated. One method is to purchase a “Call Waiting” modem, or a
modem which is v.92 compliant. Each "Call Waiting" modem is generally v.9x
compliant. With these types of modems, a telephone call received will ring even
while you are online. You can then pick up the telephone and you will have
anywhere from 7-30 seconds (up to 6 minutes with FullNet) to talk to the person
before you get disconnected from the Internet. If you hang up before that time
expires (depending on the modem) you can return to the Internet without being
disconnected. Usually there isn't much to set up when using a “Call Waiting”
modem, but because each one is different, you will need to consult the manual of
your modem for instructions on using this feature.
To use the modem-on-hold feature of v.92 compliant modems, your Internet
provider must also have v.92 compliant equipment. We recently spent over
$250,000 to upgrade our network to provide you with the fastest and most
dependable Internet access experience available and as a result every city in
the FullNet Network is now V.92 compliant and has call waiting. Many national
providers charge as much as $4.00 extra per month for this feature while we have
added it as a standard feature at no additional charge to our members! You can
also allow telephone calls in by using a device such as the Emerson Switchboard.
The Emerson Switchboard gives you the same features of a “Call Waiting” or v.92
compliant modem without having to replace your existing modem. The box gets
hooked up to your modem, your computer, and also has jacks to plug in a
telephone and fax machine as well. You can purchase the Emerson switchboard from
various online vendors for between $30 and $40 dollars plus shipping.
FullNet currently offers V.92 compliant modems free when you purchase an
annual account, plus you get a free month of service. That's right 12 months of
service for the price of 11 months and a free modem!
If you don't want to purchase an Annual Account we have V.92 modems that you
can purchase for $26.68 (which includes shipping, handling and tax). That's
right, you get the call waiting features and the faster modem speeds for less
than you would have paid for the Emerson box alone. Here is a link that you can
learn more about V.92 and modem on hold software (MOH).

Get to know your FullNet Staff!
Hello, FullNet Members:
My name is Michael Tomas and I am the VP of Technology. I started working
here at FullNet in July of 1996 and actually started in the billing department.
I quickly moved to Technical Support and from there on to Systems
Administrator. As the FullNet network grew, I eventually became the head
Network Administrator in charge of the entire dial-up network. Recently I was
promoted from that position to VP of Technology.
I currently have extensive experience (including several certifications) in:
Lucent 2.5G Lightwave equipment, Telica telephone switch, Cisco routers and
switches, all Microsoft operating systems, USR Total Control equipment, numerous
brands of modems, and much more. I have been working with the technical side of
FullNet for more than seven years.
I have been in a serious relationship with the love of my life going on 11
months now. On the weekends you can find us working on the new house we
are building, or you may also see me at the local Lowe's or Home Depot checking
out their new products.
I enjoy being part of a team that is dedicated to providing you the best
dial-up service in the state, and look forward to the continued improvements in
our cutting edge technologies that will improve your Internet access experience.
VP of Technology
