Remote Access Pilot

Starting December 1, UC Davis will be conducting a pilot test of Pacific Bell's Internet provider service. Any UC Davis faculty and staff member who lives outside of the local 530 dialing area may participate in the pilot. UC Davis plans to test this service for three months in and around the cities of Sacramento, Roseville, Fairfield, Vallejo, Vacaville, Oakland and Berkeley. Participants must agree to submit weekly surveys about Pacific Bell's service and use this pilot as the primary dial-in connection to the Internet for three months. This service will be free for the three-month pilot; users will be expected to pay a fee if Pacific Bell becomes the campus's remote access provider. Registration for this pilot is ongoing, on a first-come first-served basis. To apply, fill out the form on the Web at
