MAR 22, 1999 - Line upgrade notice. We have been given a confirmed due date by our vendor of 4/9/99 to double capacity on the North Augusta number which will temporarily alleviate congestion, and have been given a window of 90 days for total 400% capacity upgrade to North Augusta using a different vendor. After reviewing statistics for Q1 99 we may increase this upgrade to 800%. We have been promised fifteen day turnaround on new orders once the new vendor is implemented. Once this upgrade is in place we will begin transitioning some current customers to the new number to reduce congestion on our main Aiken number, since it has been confirmed twice by our current line vendor that we cannot expand 641-2800 ever beyond its current capacity for technical reasons, so we will be maintaining this number at current scale and expanding on the new number. We will maintain our moratorium on new signups until capacity is available and apologize for the inconvenience. noc@duesouth.net
