Hi everyone,

We will have our monthly meeting this Thursday, May 18, 2000 at 6:00 PM. The featured speaker will be Chris Candreva, founder of WestNet and long time WATPA member, who will wrap up our series on getting faster access to the Internet, by providing an independent view. (For details please see excerpts from the press release below.)

In an attempt to reach out, this meeting will be held in the Westchester County Office Building, 148 Martine Avenue, White Plains, Room 948. (It's right in downtown across the street from the Galleria.)

See you there,


The Third In WATPA's Seminar Series Focuses On
An Internet Service Provider's Perspective

The Westchester Alliance For Telecommunications And Public Access (WATPA), along with the Westchester Library System, is pleased to announce the third in a series of presentations on getting faster access to the Internet. This presentation will be by Mr. Christopher X. Candreva, who is the co-founder and President of WestNet, a Westchester-based Internet Service Provider. Founded in 1994, WestNet provides service to New York City, Westchester, Rockland, and Orange counties, including dial-up accounts, ISDN, web hosting, leased T1 lines, and DSL service.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2000 at 6 P.M. in the County Office Building, 148 Martine Avenue, Room 948, White Plains, NY. (Visitors can park across the street in the Galleria Parking Garage.) There is no cost to attend.

Mr. Candreva will discuss, in non-technical language, an independent view of high speed Internet access. This will be of special interest to those in smaller businesses and home offices who have felt restricted by the relatively slow speeds of modem access to the Internet.

Mr. Candreva will cover these topics:
DSL and Broadband: hype vs. truth
Differences between Bell Atlantic and other offerings by other companies
Difference between services of telephone companies (like Covad, Northpoint) as opposed to an Internet Service Provider (like WestNet, Cyburban)
Differences between consumer (ADSL) and commercial (SDSL) offerings
What to expect when ordering DSL
Cable modem services: pros and cons
