June 16, 2010

Penn State Information Technology Services (ITS) is reminding students, faculty and staff that the University Park 814-863-2222 and 814-865-2222 modem pool will be terminated between 5 and 7 a.m. on July 1, during a regularly scheduled maintenance window. Plans to decommission the modem pool and its corresponding dial-up capabilities were first announced in March, 2009 (see for the original announcement). As of July 1, 2009, ITS reduced the number of active dial-in lines for the University Park modem pool in preparation for its complete termination. As a follow-up to the original announcement, ITS has issued two targeted notices to those who still use the University Park modem pool for connectivity.

Details about this service's termination and information about Internet connectivity options are included in the original announcement referenced above. Inquiries and request for assistance should be directed to
