US Internet Celebrates 10 Years
Evolves company and product line into an international Internet and hosting provider
Minneapolis, MN — June 16, 2005 — US Internet, an international Internet and hosting provider (http://www.usinternet.com), today announced the celebration of 10 years in business.
Since 1995, US Internet has evolved from a local ISP, offering dial-up Internet access, to a thriving business with an international scope, offering a comprehensive product line, including Internet voice and data, web hosting, anti-spam and anti-virus, remote system backup, colocation services, disaster recovery, application hosting, ecommerce services, web site statistics and network monitoring.
"What started out 10 years ago on a shoe-string budget has steadily grown into a business far exceeding anyone's expectations," said Joe Caldwell, US Internet co-founder and vice president of marketing. "We are all very proud of this accomplishment and grateful to our customers and employees who helped get us here."
US Internet was founded in March 1995 by a handful of Twin Cities entrepreneurs: Travis Carter, Kurt Lange, Joe Caldwell, and Bill Milota. Headquartered in Minnetonka, Minnesota, each founder brought their own unique talent to the table: Travis Carter technology prowess, Kurt Lange systems and customer service expertise, Joe Caldwell sales and marketing savvy, and Bill Milota legal and business acumen.
US Internet initially offered local dial-up service to consumers and then quickly spread nationwide covering over 2,300 markets. With the proliferation of consumer Internet access, the Company launched a web hosting business to capture an increasing number of web sites. With this success, US Internet developed a business-to-business arm and made available high-speed Internet connectivity for organizations of all sizes, from the mom and pop to enterprise-level Fortune 500 companies.
At the same time, US Internet built a high tech, state-of-the-art data center offering colocation, disaster recovering and data protection services. As the Company matured along with the Internet industry, US Internet evolved its scope and product offering beyond North America, launching colocation facilities in Minneapolis, MN, Milwaukee, WI, London, UK, and Sydney, AU. Soon, anti-spam and anti-virus software and application hosting services were added to the product mix.
"Today US Internet offers a comprehensive suite of Internet and hosting services that can be tailor-made and bring about a meaningful difference for any company of any size in the world, as long as they are connected to the Internet," said Travis Carter, US Internet co-founder and vice president of technology. "We pride ourselves on service that is reliable, efficient and competitively priced — all backed by 24/7 world class customer service. Our mission is to ensure everyone gets their net's worth."
Added Kurt Lange, US Internet co-founder and vice president of systems and customer service, "During our 10-year life span, our focus on customer service has never wavered. We understand that Internet connectivity or web hosting, for instance, demands a quick response. Because we offer 24/7 tech support staffed by seasoned professionals, whether you are a consumer or a business, we have been able to deliver timely solutions again and again with a very satisfied customer rating."
Continued Lange, "By being in touch with our customer base, we have also been able to anticipate their needs and grow with their business. That's one of the major reasons why we have been so successful. We very much look forward to the next 10 years."
