GAINESVILLE (July 7, 1998) — Atlantic.Net: Internet Connect Company, Inc., one of Florida’s most popular Internet service providers, is pleased to announce that its 56K Internet access is now available in Starke and the surrounding communities.
Atlantic.Net is one of the only Internet providers to offer access in the local Starke calling area. Prior to this announcement, many Internet users have had to incur toll charges to Gainesville in order to use an on-line service. All of Bradford County is now included in the Atlantic.Net calling area.
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.
“People in these communities will see an immediate benefit using our 56K access,” says Atlantic.Net president and CEO Marty Puranik, “Digital modems overcome many of the technical deficiencies found in traditional analog phones lines, which could result in slow connection speeds and unexplained disconnects for Internet users— regardless of the provider they used.”
Atlantic.Net subscribers using 56K modems will get fast, reliable Internet connections thanks to the clarity of the signal in the digital modems. Because it is a digital service, customers may also use dial-up 64Kbps ISDN terminal adapters to access the Internet at the higher speeds for the same monthly fee. Dial-up 128Kbps ISDN access is also available for an additional charge.
Dial-up 56K Internet accounts start at just $9.95 per month; including access to the World Wide Web, electronic mail, discussion groups and other easy-to-use features. The Atlantic.Net software startup kit, featuring Microsoft’s Internet Explorer Web browser, is available for the Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
In 1995, two University of Florida students launched one of North Florida’s first commercial Internet services, Atlantic.Net. Over it’s 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 been recognized both Nationally and in Florida as one of the fastest-growing private companies.
