Gainesville, FL— Atlantic.Net, one of the Southeast’s most reliable and fastest-growing IP (Internet Protocol) carriers, announced it is extending indefinitely its offer to provide free equipment and free activation to businesses that sign a one-year contract for Atlantic.Net’s Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) Internet access. This offer is being extended to support former NorthPoint customers in Florida, whose DSL service was terminated when AT&T bought NorthPoint’s assets late last month.

Atlantic.Net can turn up the DSL circuits within fifteen business days after a contract is signed. In addition, Atlantic.Net is offering temporary dial-up connections to businesses until their Atlantic.Net DSL connections are established.

“We are proud to offer a solution to former NorthPoint customers,” said Adnan Raja, product manager at Atlantic.Net. “It’s also a perfect opportunity for Atlantic.Net to demonstrate why we are one of the fastest-growing companies in Florida and the nation.”

To sign up for DSL, businesses can call 1-800-422-2936. To learn more about Atlantic.Net’s service, visit http://www.atlantic.net/dsl or e-mail sales@atlantic.net.
