Prepaid Internet for Business Travelers

Acellus Communications, Inc. is a company that just announced something interesting with the launch of its nationwide prepaid Internet service called This spanking new prepaid Internet service could be quite a bonus for business travelers AND a great way to score some points with your boss. With, you can access Acellus Communication’s internet service as a local call from almost any city in the U.S. That’s quite a tall order. But Acellus claims more than 42,000 local access numbers. That’s a lot of numbers.

The part of the press release that really struck me was this:

Besides providing reliable connectivity, the service will save travelers (and/or their employers) lots of money. Nowadays most hotels and motels will charge anywhere from $10 to $15 per day for their Internet service. This is pretty expensive considering most people just want to check their e-mail and send a message or two. This usually requires less than 10 to 15 minutes online. If you’re a business traveler on the road 4 days a week, that can ad up to $160 or more per month! On the other hand Acellus’ prepaid service for the same amount of time (about 16 hours per month) would cost only about $6.65.

Now, that is not true will ALL classes of hotels. If you’re staying at the Holiday Inn Express, you wouldn’t need this service. But if you’re at a Marriott or a Hilton, it could save some dough. And bosses like it when you save the dollars. And it kind of sticks it to the man, which makes me happy.

This service will be sold on CDs in retail stores across the country and is available now on the website

I mean, it’s still dial up, so don’t expect lightning speed. But if you just need to check your mail and you don’t want to use your cell phone, it could certainly work.
