GAINESVILLE (5/21/02) – Gainesville-based Atlantic.Net, a nationwide provider of Internet and telecommunications services and one of the nation’s fastest-growing companies, today announced it has opened an office in Orlando. The company, ranked number 223 on this year’s Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, opens its Orlando office with five employees and plans to grow as quickly as possible, but according to the needs of the business. Atlantic.Net has appointed Adnan Raja, formerly director of business development, as general manager of the Orlando office. Raja brings experience in the technology industry and knowledge of the Central Florida market.
“Atlantic.Net has kept a low profile for the last eight years and now it’s time to demonstrate our best technologies and excellent customer service in the Central Florida market, particularly because so many businesses are in need of a stable, reliable Internet provider,” said Adnan Raja, general manager, Orlando market. “Not only will we provide the newest and highest-quality products available, we plan to create jobs in Orlando. Our overall plan is to implement our proven methods of doing business for the benefit of companies in Orlando and the surrounding areas.”
Atlantic.Net’s new office is located at 2500 Maitland Center Parkway Suite 401 Maitland, FL 32751. Adnan Raja can be reached at 407.916.8338.
Atlantic.Net’s services include broadband, telecommunications, e-commerce, Web solutions and dial-up. The company, ranked number 223 on this year’s Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, was founded by two University of Florida students in 1995. Over the past seven years, Atlantic.Net has acquired 13 Internet service companies and augmented its e-business services to include long distance services, true private networks, fractional T-1 through DS-3 connectivity, DSL and ISDN access, Web hosting and Web design. Atlantic.Net’s staff has grown to more than 100 employees who regularly participate in the Alachua County Guardian Ad Litem drive to provide toys for needy children at Christmas and in local United Way and March of Dimes charity events.
