Atlantic.Net 56K Internet Available in St. Petersburg & Clearwater

GAINESVILLE (April 8, 1998) — Atlantic. Net / Internet Connect Company, Inc. (ICC), one of Florida’s most popular Internet service providers, is pleased to announce that 56K Internet access is now available to subscribers in St. Petersburg.

Now users with 56k-compatible modems will be able to access download Web pages and other Internet utilities at nearly twice the speeds as was available with a standard 28.8k modem.

“We’re happy to be introducing the 56k Internet capability to our subscribers in St. Petersburg,” says ICC president CEO Marty Puranik, “I think people will be pleasantly surprised at how fast it really is.”

Because it is a digital service, it also allows customers using dial-up 64k ISDN terminal adapters to access the Internet at higher speeds for the same monthly cost. Dial-up 128k ISDN access is also available.
