Dell, 3Com Deliver PCs for DSL, Cable Modems

Dell Computer Corp. and 3Com Corp. plan to deliver high-speed, integrated modems compatible with DSL and cable modem technologies.

The high-speed Internet modems are expected to be available early next year on Dell Dimension PCs, marking the latest development in Dell's ConnectDirect initiative to customize PCs for high-speed Internet services from leading U.S. telephone and cable companies.

In October, Dell announced an initiative for internal cable services with high-speed PCs. Dimension PCs were shipped in November with integrated modems for ADSL Internet services by U.S. West Advanced Technologies (Boulder, Colo., www.uswest.com).

"By working directly with 3Com, leading Internet service providers and their customers, Dell is customizing PCs to match high-speed Internet services that are available today," says Carl Everett, senior vice president of Dell Computer Corp. "As we integrate fast PCs and fast Internet services, either through cable or DSL technology, the Internet becomes a fast, more robust experience for consumers and small businesses." – Thomas Sullivan, Staff Reporter/Reviews Editor
