Broadband Services for Off-Campus Homes

ITSS has provided a dial-up modem service for off-campus faculty, staff, and students for many years. Although this service continues to be supported, many customers prefer the faster transmission speeds offered by a broadband provider. To deliver broadband services to your home, the provider must have access through cabling or through wireless transmission to your home. This is not a service that ITSS can provide.

At present there are three broadband providers in the Duluth area for you to consider using. If you are aware of others that we do not list here, please let us know. Local providers include:

For information about how to connect to the UMD network through a broadband provider, see our web page on Off-Campus Access to Services.

Using a broadband provider at home will give you data network speeds more similar to what you are used to on campus. By all means, feel free to continue to use the UMD modem pool. But if you want faster service, try broadband.
