Important Changes for BU Internet CD/Modem Pool Users within the 617- Area Code


Beginning on Monday, April 2, 2001, users dialing into the BU campus network/modem pool using the BU Internet CD must use the 10 digit number (617-378-1111). This change affects users who are already in the 617- area code. If you currently dial into the BU modem pool from outside the 617- area code, you are not affected by this change.
