ATLANTA, Georgia, August 21, 2008 - Local Internet Service Providers GreatAccess.com, Inc and Net2Atlanta.com, LLC are pleased to announce their merger, creating a stronger ISP offering a greater range of services and broader technical support for growing businesses in the Atlanta area. The new company will continue under the Net2Atlanta.com, LLC name and be based in Marietta.|
The merger combines two like minded businesses that offer overlapping services. Both companies focus on quality service, high reliability, personalized customer care and long term relationships. Internet connectivity customers will benefit from GreatAccess' highly reliable and diverse upstream connectivity. While Co-location customers will benefit from the increased technical staff.
"Our companies operate very similarly. When I met with Net2Atlanta, I felt the energies that the combined companies created," said Michael Lucking, founder of GreatAccess. "This merger makes a lot of sense. With the elimination of overlapping back office expenses the combined companies are much stronger and have the best potential for growth possible."
Milt Aitken, founder of Net2Atlanta, added "It's refreshing to find another company that focuses o high-touch customer care and long term relationships. All of our customers should receive even better support with the larger staff. This is a win-win for all concerned."
Clients of both companies will continue to receive seamless, uninterrupted service. After the merger, they will continue to enjoy the same high levels of service they have come to expect over the years.
The new company will remain privately held.
