CRYSTAL RIVER, Fla. (4/25/03) – Atlantic.Net, Florida’s largest privately held Internet provider, today announced upgrades in the Crystal River area that offer local residents faster and more versatile Internet access.
“These improvements are the direct result of feedback we received from our members in Crystal River, and we are excited about delivering what they have asked for,” said Marty Puranik, Atlantic.Net president and CEO. “Because of these enhancements, Crystal River residents can finally get the speed they want, along with the superior customer service that Atlantic.Net is known to provide.”
The upgrades utilize V.92 technology to give users faster connections and download times. The service also enables customers to put the Web “on hold” to answer incoming phone calls without disconnecting from the Internet. Besides saving members time, the “modem on hold” feature saves customers money by eliminating the need for a second phone line.
To take advantage of Atlantic.Net’s upgrades, customers must use a V.92 modem and connect via a Crystal River local access number. For more information or to sign up for an Atlantic.Net Internet account, call (800) 921-9328 or visit www.atlantic.net.
