When the public internet service started in January/February 1999, he was looking for a suitable ISP for his personal use, and did some research. He decided that other people would benefit from such research and put the results on the web.Q: The prices and speed you mention are not correct anymore. How is that? A: This web site is not updated on a regular basis. The information in it is current as of Summer 2000. Of course, prices and speeds may have changed since.
