Atlantic.Net Offers Relief to Former BlueStar Customers in Florida

Gainesville, FL (6/27/01) – Atlantic.Net, an IP (Internet Protocol) carrier and one of the nation’s fastest-growing companies, announced today a special offer for former BlueStar customers across Florida. Atlantic.Net is offering free equipment and free activation to businesses that sign a one-year contract for Atlantic.Net’s Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) Internet access, and free installation to businesses that sign a two-year agreement for a high-speed T-1 connection. BlueStar Communications, an Internet service provider serving small and mid-sized businesses in the Southeastern United States, ceased operations on Monday.

Atlantic.Net can turn up the DSL circuits within 15 business days after a contract is signed and typically installs a T-1 line in 30 days. In addition, Atlantic.Net is offering alternative connections to businesses until their Atlantic.Net DSL or T-1 connections are established.

“Atlantic.Net is in the fortunate position to be able to offer excellent service to customers who are in the unfortunate position of having to find a new Internet provider,” said Marty Puranik, president and CEO of Atlantic.Net. “Our optimistic but cautious approach has allowed us not only to sustain but to grow our business, and we are proud of that.”

To sign up for DSL or a T-1 connection, businesses can call 1-800-521-5881. To learn more about Atlantic.Net’s services, visit
