RCN Launches New Portal

RCN launched a new free portal (rcn.net) that allows anyone accessing the Internet to customize the content on their home page.

The MSO’s subscribers can also view broadband videos and TV listings, pay their bills online and connect to other RCN services including “RCN interaction Music and Games.”

All users can control and personalize their own home pages, access their Web mail, customize their weather page by ZIP code and see special RCN offers.

“RCN’s customers will be able to create a meaningful online experience in interacting with us to manage their relationship,” RCN executive vice president and chief technology officer Timothy Dunne said in a prepared statement. “We will be adding ‘community-building’ applications down the road that will allow them to optimize their communications and online experience.”
