This error is usually caused by an interruption in the connection by you or your computer. Make sure that you wait for the connection to complete and do not hit cancel. If it is taking a very long time to connect, please try the following steps.

A. Have you tried another access number ?

Note: If you are subscribed to Juno's Toll-Free service please skip to step B.

Your connection may have been dropped due to technical difficulties with the access number you are using. Try connecting to Juno again. If the problem persists, try using another access number in your area. For instructions on how to change your access number please click here.
