Juno's Broadband Service Now Available in 63 Markets
Juno Express DSL Expands Into 39 New Markets
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 12, 2000--Juno Online Services, Inc. (Nasdaq: JWEB - news) today announced that the DSL version of its high-speed broadband Internet access service is now available in 39 new markets throughout the United States, including San Antonio, Indianapolis, Columbus, Memphis, and Milwaukee.

The service, which the company expects to roll out in additional markets later this year, is part of Juno Express(SM), Juno's suite of high-speed Internet access options.

Juno Express is now available in a total of 63 major U.S. markets. Juno Express DSL subscribers enjoy a dedicated, always-on connection to the Internet at speeds up to 21 times faster than an ordinary dial-up connection. Among other benefits, this enables rapid downloads of high-bandwidth content such as video, music files, and software.

Juno is the nation's third-largest provider of dial-up Internet services, after AOL and EarthLink, with more than 3.38 million active subscribers. The company's offerings include free basic Internet access, billable premium dial-up service, and high-speed broadband access.

Juno Express is designed to offer subscribers a range of broadband service options. Currently, subscribers can choose between DSL service, provided through Juno's relationship with Covad Communications (Nasdaq: COVD - news), the leading national broadband services provider of DSL, and high-speed mobile wireless access, provided in collaboration with Metricom (Nasdaq: MCOM - news). Juno has also announced plans to begin offering fixed satellite broadband access through an alliance with Hughes Network Systems, a unit of Hughes Electronics Corporation (NYSE: GMH - news), and cable broadband access through agreements with Time Warner (NYSE: TWX - news) and AT&T (NYSE: T - news).

``Although broadband adoption by consumers is still in the early stages, we believe that broadband represents the future of Internet access, and we are committed to making broadband services available to Juno subscribers nationwide,'' said Wendy Rosenberg, Juno's senior vice president in charge of the Juno Express rollout. ``The expansion of our DSL service into over three dozen new markets is a significant step toward that goal.''
