Global Village™ CableModem for Macintosh Ships to CompUSA and Fry's

Boston, MA, October 2, 2001 — The Global Village CableModem Model 6011 is now shipping to CompUSA, Fry's Electronics and other retailers of Macintosh products. The Model 6011 includes a CableLabs™ and @Homesm certified Ethernet cable modem, Ethernet cable, Norton Personal Firewall™, Norton Antivirus™, and Lemke's GraphicConverter. This is believed to be the first cable modem designed specifically for the Macintosh.

The Global Village Model 6011 works with Macintosh OS 7.6.1 or later operating systems, including the new Macintosh OS X. The kit's cable modem installs easily by plugging it into the Ethernet port of an appropriately equipped Macintosh computer.

Norton Personal Firewall for Macintosh software monitors all Internet connections, logging and alerting the user to attempted intrusions by hackers. Firewall protection is especially important in an intrusion-vulnerable "always on" cable modem connection.

Norton Antivirus for Macintosh is the best selling software of its type; and can find and repair infected files, including e-mail attachments. The program's LiveUpdate™ feature automatically updates virus definitions over the Internet, either at the user's manual command or on a predetermined schedule.

Lemke's GraphicConverter is a graphics manipulation and conversion utility. Apple Computer's online magazine describes the program as "one of the most popular…applications ever created for the Macintosh."

"Zoom Telephonics purchased the Global Village brand in the year 2000 as a top brand for Macintosh communications," said Frank Manning, President and CEO of Zoom Telephonics. "The Model 6011 extends the product line with an outstanding Internet access product. We've included a fully approved cable modem and the best Macintosh firewall on the market, and we back it with Macintosh technical support specialists. The product is being sold through a select group of the top Macintosh retailers."

The estimated U.S. retail price of the GlobalVillage CableModem Model 6011 is $199.
