Atlantic.Net Acquires Digital Access Internet Access Customers

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (2/18/99) – Atlantic.Net Internet Services is pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement to purchase the dial-up Internet subscribers, dedicated access accounts, and Web hosting clients of Digital Access, which operated primarily in Starke and Keystone Heights.

Effective immediately, former Digital Access customers will be able to take advantage of all of Atlantic.Net’s features, including 56Kbps Web browsing and e-mail service. Technical support is available seven days a week and subscribers will have access to the Atlantic.Net software startup kit, featuring Netscape Communicator, which is available for Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Subscribers may access the service in any of the 30 cities Atlantic.Net currently serves, or anywhere in the country with the Atlantic.Net roaming access plan.

Atlantic.Net is honoring all service agreements with Digital Access users and subscribers will not need to make any immediate network changes to their computers. However, Atlantic.Net recommends that all subscribers begin notifying friends and family of the impending change in their e-mail addresses, which will take effect in two months.

Anyone with questions regarding this change should call the Atlantic.Net Member Services department at 1-800-921-9328 or send an e-mail to [email protected]. Users are encouraged to visit for complete details and a list of frequently asked questions concerning the transition.

The terms of the deal are not being disclosed.
