Boca is offering two ways to upgrade. The first option allows users with any brand of 28.8- or 33.6-kbps modem to purchase a Boca 56K Internet Modem at designated stores at an estimated price of between $149 and $169, depending on the model.
At the time of purchase, a rebate coupon for $30 will be offered. The purchaser will be asked to send in the 28.8- or 33.6-kbps modem and rebate coupon to Boca Research and, in turn, will receive the $30 rebate, according to the company.
The second way to upgrade allows direct exchange between Boca Research and the consumer at a reduced cost. However, the exchange is limited to end users who currently own a Boca Research 33.6-kbps modem.
A customer owning a Boca 33.6-kbps modem will send the modem and $99, plus $14.95 shipping and handling, to Boca Research and, in turn, will receive a Boca 56K Internet Modem, the company said.
