This page and this table are to inform you of the different ways you can connect to Cumberland Internet, Inc.- Please look it over and write down an alternate number for you to dial if you should happen to get a busy signal on your primary line.  Print this page out for future reference.

We recommend that every user connect to us by using the 56k modems but the 33.6k modems are also available if you prefer these lines. There is more capacity on the 56k lines.   The easiest way for you to dial the alternate line is to double click like you are going to connect to the Internet. At the page where you put your username and password, click where it shows the telephone number and change it to the alternate number and then click on 'connect'.  This is for a one time change.  The next time you open your connection, it will have the old number in it.  If you want to change the number you are dialing permanently, see the instructions below the table on this page.
