TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 15, 2006) - Pathway Communications (www.pathcom.com), Canada's leading provider of integrated Internet solutions to business and residential customers, has enhanced its residential product portfolio.

Current and future Pathway customers will now take advantage of:

Pathway's residential Internet service comes with a complete suite of valuable features, such as multiple email accounts, web-based email access, web space, spam and virus control and 24 x 7 technical support. Customers can choose between a range of High Speed or Dial-up Plans to find the right plan for their Internet needs.

"Our residential Internet customers will continue to enjoy the comfort of exceptionally fast, secure and trouble-free Internet service," says Pathway Communications President Ashok Kalle. "We work hard to ensure that their connections are always up and free of problems such as viruses and spam."

Pathway's service plans include FastPath™ Secure, FastPath™ HomeNet and LightPath™.

- FastPath Secure is designed for home users who want peace of mind when they surf the Internet. This security-rich plan provides advanced protection against viruses, spyware, and spam. A personal firewall blocks hackers from accessing a PC or personal information, allowing users to connect to the Internet worry-free.

- FastPath HomeNet is designed for home users who demand speed, value, and the high level of service that Pathway clients have come to expect since 1995.

- LightPath is designed for users who need safe and reliable high speed Internet access at an affordable price. It uses the same ADSL technology as FastPath HomeNet and provides speeds of up to 512 Kbps x 512 Kbps (about 9 times the speed of a regular dial-up connection). This is fast enough for online shopping and banking, playing online games downloading videos, music and large files

Now with a home networking modem/router (with optional wireless access), users can connect multiple PCs into one network and a single high speed Internet connection can be shared amongst members of the household, allowing the entire family to use the Internet simultaneously. With Pathway's home networking modem/router, users can have their own home network up and running in no time!

"Residential customer rely on us to provide them the online productivity tools they need," adds Kalle. "To help keep our customers secure, we believe it is important that we continue to provide new and improved services that meet their changing requirements."
