Atlantic.Net was founded in 1994 by two University of Florida students, Marty Puranik and Jose Sanchez, who started the company by selling computers. After being denied Internet access through the university in 1995, Puranik and Sanchez launched one of the first commercial Internet services in Florida, serving Gainesville and Ocala. Since then, the company has been rapidly expanding its coverage areas, acquiring smaller access providers and enhancing its service offerings. The company now has 22,000 subscribers in 40 locations statewide. For more company information, check out http://newsroom.atlantic.net.
