computers. After being denied Internet access through the university
in 1995, Puranik and Sanchez launched one of the first commercial
Internet services in Gainesville and Ocala, Florida. Today, Atlantic.Net
offers service in 45 locations across the state, more than any other
ISP. The company has 30,000 subscribers in five states. Revenues
have doubled every year since inception and in 1999 Atlantic.Net
