TelAlaska has started offering a high-speed Internet service called digital subscriber line service in downtown Seward. Debut of the service follows successful beta testing by more than 20 customers, company officials said.

The company plans to offer the service in other areas of Seward in 2002.

TelAlaska owns Seward.Net and Interior Phone Co., which provides local telephone service. TelAlaska provides Internet service in about six Alaska communities: cable modem high-speed Internet service in Dutch Harbor and DSL high-speed Internet service in Anchorage, the Matanuska-Susitna area, Sand Point, Cold Bay and King Cove.

TelAlaska’s DSL service is available for single and multiple user packages at download speeds of 1.5 megabytes per second and 384 kilobytes per second upload. The single user package is $75 per month and includes free dial-up service, which allows customers to check e-mail accounts when they are traveling.
