1-888-ROADWWW supports road travelers with Internet access

Support and safety now available as Internet Service Specialists assist cell phone users with Internet access on their behalf while traveling on the road Attention: Business/Financial Editor, City Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor, Transportation Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 2, 2005) - ROADWEB™ is a new service that gives cell phone users access to the Internet. There's no doubt that people often want or need to access the Internet while sitting in their vehicles. Not everyone has high tech equipment in their cars to do this, but almost everyone has a cell phone.

By calling toll-free to 1-888-ROADWWW (1-888-762-3999, or 1-Triple-8-ROAD-Triple-W), you can take advantage of a team of Internet-surfing specialists access Web sites for you, to get the information you need.

"How do I get from Point A to Point B?", "How do I get back on track; I've made a wrong turn in unfamiliar territory", and "I need to make or cancel a hotel / restaurant / flight" are all things that the ROADWEB team can and do help with. Other types of requests include "What's the weather like up ahead on my trip?", "What detours or road construction do I face along the way?", or even "What is there for my kids to do today while we're here?".

Although the call is toll-free, the service is not free, but designed to be very affordable. It costs just $5 for each service period of 5 minutes or less. Payment is made directly on the phone via either Visa or Mastercard.

At launch, ROADWEB™ is focusing on the greater Toronto area, but the 1-888-ROADWWW toll-free number is accessible from anywhere in North America.
