  • Q:Will I need to do anything new to log onto the Internet?
  • A:No, you can continue logging onto the Internet the same way you always have. Some customers that have the same login id as a current Waymark customer will have to change their login. If there is a duplicate logon name, initially the Verix Technology users will have a new in front of their dialup logon name (ie. say there is an existing logon name of "bob" and there is a logon name of "bob" at Verix Technology. The Verix name will change to "vbob". ). This will not affect most the Verix Technology customers as there are not that many duplicates.

The speed at which you connect can be impacted by a number of factors some related to your individual PC and others related to Internet conditions. So, the speed at which you connect may vary from one log-on to the next. You will still receive the high level of dependable service provided by Verix Technology.
