.. pentru pasionatii EON, iata cateva vesti bune:
Dear EON Boards, dear EOL Members,
I am delighted to communicate to you today that thanks to the invaluable
support and loyalty of the EON Boards, the EOL Members, the EOL File Fetch
Community, and EOL ASBL (the non-profit organization and predecessor to
Europe Online Investments), we have collectively found a way to
continue to offer the EOL File Fetch, e-lert, and customer email services
Tests on the new satellite will commence one week from now, 15 February
and will last for one month in order to give all potential users of the
service the possibility of seeing whether they can capture the satellite
All who had a valid password for the EOL File Fetch Service and e-lert
service and/or customer email as of 23 July 2004 will be able to be
eligible to partake in the test. All you will need to do as of 15
February is go to http://www.europeonline.net and put in your normal EOL
FF password to access the service.
During this time, the regular EOL File Fetch and e-lert services with 1 GB
per month allocation will be offered along with a 1 GB File Zone
(increased from 700 Mbps to respond to popular demand).
The satellite that the EOL File Fetch and e-lert services will first be
offered on is THOR II
It is also being envisaged at a later time and depending on the initial
take-up, that the EOL File Fetch and e-lert services could be extended to
THOR 3 which has a more southern coverage. We understand that some may
not be able to receive THOR 2. We will continue to try and work on a
solution for this. In addition, after the test period, it is envisaged
that the DSL Digital Library and Video on Demand service will be
re-instated on the Thor satellites if there is enough demand for them.
THOR II is owned and operated by Telenor, (http://www.telenor.com).
Telenor has committed to providing satellite capacity and Internet
backbone for a minimum of 18 months for the EOL File Fetch and EOL e-lert
Services from 15 February, 2005. After the test period and depending on
the take-up, we will allocate the necessary bandwidth in order to provide
a level of service equal to the service enjoyed by the EOL File Fetch
Members, where queues do not exceed 24 hours. We will start the test
month with 2 File Fetch streams at ca. 2 MB each with capacity also for
the e-lert and overhead.
The satellite capacity and Internet backbone capacity can be extended
within 24 hours notice, if the demand and the ability to receive the
signal is so great that this is necessary. It is also important to
your boards to let us know if you would like to have the service but are
in a region where it is not possible to receive the signal.
During the test period, we will be in touch with you to see if you can
receive the signal and look forward to receiving your feedback, which will
be very important. It is envisaged that the yearly membership dues for
the EOL File Fetch service will be 180 Euros paid up front and 20 Euros
per month if a monthly payment method is chosen. This will however be
confirmed throughout the course of the month from 15 February to 15 March.
In closing, I would like to thank all of you and in particular the
management of the EON Boards who have worked daily with all stakeholders
in order to continue the provision of the EOL File Fetch and e-lert
iata cat acopera Thor 2
