MSN to Offer TCP Services, Mac Client?

Send Article to a Friend

MSN to Offer TCP Services, Mac Client? Bill Miller, director of marketing and business development for Microsoft Network (MSN), said Thursday that MSN will offer direct TCP/IP connections in the first half of 1996 on a city-by-city basis for a fixed subscription rate. Miller also said that MSN will be available to Macintosh users a year after MSN's introduction on 24-Aug-95. Time will tell, but I wouldn't be surprised if these statements were only half true.
