The Geographic Expansion of Atlantic.Net Internet Services
The Industrial Revolution in the United States came to a close sometime between the late 1980s and early 1990s when it was replaced by the Information Revolution. During the 1990s the nation's information infrastructure began to undergo a massive restructuring, which continues today. Whole new sectors of the telecommunication industry that previously had not existed grew to enormous importance in a matter of a few years. The Internet Service Provider (ISP) was one of them.
