Orlando, FL - Atlantic.Net, one of the Southeast’s fastest-growing and most reliable IP-carriers, today announced an agreement with real estate management services company Jones Lang LaSalle to deliver and market its services to business tenants in Ella Park Centre, a 15-story commercial building in downtown Orlando. The telecommunications agreement allows Atlantic.Net to install the equipment necessary to provide high-speed Internet services to 169,000 square feet of space and more than 47 tenants.

“Atlantic.Net is fortunate to be working with Jones Lang LaSalle,” said Marty Puranik, president and CEO of Atlantic.Net. “Many of the Internet providers that originally signed agreements with property management companies have gone out of business, giving Atlantic.Net the opportunity to differentiate itself with its business model. Being in business for seven years is testimony to how well we execute, and we will continue to do the same in the real estate arena.”

Atlantic.Net’s current agreement with Jones Lang LaSalle is for DSL service. DSL technology uses existing telephone wires to enable high-speed Internet access and “always- on” connections, at costs much lower than other high-speed options, such as a T-1 line.
