Alltel has announced today that they are no longer supporting dial-up or high-speed internet users who have computers running Windows 98, 98SE, or ME. This shouldn’t be a problem for most people. For those who have these operating systems, it is just one more reason to upgrade! Here is an excerpt from the Alltel email:

Effective Tuesday, July 11, 2006, Windows 98, 98SE and ME will no longer be supported by Microsoft. Due to the “end-of-life” status of these operating systems, Alltel will make changes to our minimum PC requirements for Broadband and Dial-Up services. We will continue to provide “best effort” support of existing customers who have these OSs. Also, we will not deny service if a potential customer has one of these systems. However, we do ask that you be aware that our mutual customers may need to upgrade to a newer OS if they experience problems with their service as a result of their older software. Please click here for the updated requirements.
