GAINESVILLE (June 11, 1998) — Florida’s fastest-growing Internet service provider, Atlantic.Net: Internet Connect Company, Inc. has expanded its coverage area to include Palatka and the rest of Putnam County.
Atlantic.Net Internet service is available for as little as $9.95 per month and includes full access to Web pages, electronic mail, discussion groups, and most other Internet utilities. A free software startup kit is available for the Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Anyone wishing to try the service should call 1-800-422-2936.
Atlantic.Net deploys 56Kbps modems because of the remarkable clarity of the digital signals, which maximizes connection speeds and makes its service much more reliable. Users with 56K-compatible modems will be able to access Web pages and use other Internet utilities at nearly twice the speed of a standard 28.8Kbps modem, for no additional cost.
“We’re happy to be introducing our 56K service to new subscribers in Putnam County,” says Atlantic.Net president and CEO Marty Puranik, “I think people will be pleasantly surprised at how fast and easy-to-use our service is.”
Since it is a digital service, customers may also use dial-up 64Kbps ISDN terminal adapters to access the internet at higher speeds for the same monthly fee. Dial-up 128Kbps ISDN access is also available for an additional charge.
In 1995, two University of Florida students launched one of North Florida’s first commercial Internet services, Atlantic.Net. Over its first seven years, Atlantic.Net acquired 13 Internet service companies and augmented its e-business services to include long-distance services, dial-up, broadband, web solutions, fractional T-1 through DS-3 connectivity, DSL, and ISDN access, Web hosting, Web design, and e-commerce. Atlantic.Net’s staff has grown to more than 100 employees and has been recognized both Nationally and in Florida as one of the fastest-growing private companies.
