How We Got Started
E-vergent's roots go back to the early years of commercial Internet. We started in 1995 as Wisconsin Internet, Inc. providing dial-up Internet, T1 Internet, website hosting, webpage design, email hosting, and consulting. We have been a member of RAMAC, Racine Chamber of Commerce, since 1995. We are also a founding member of RTO, Racine Technology Organization, and a proud member of the Wisconsin State Telecommunications association.
As dial-up was being replaced with faster services and the Internet was becoming a crucial tool for business we started exploring high-speed options. Wireless is the only option we could control end to end without having to rely on another company. After a year of equipment trials and training we started offering wireless Internet service in 2003 under the name e-vergent.
Where We Are Now
Today e-vergent is best known for providing high speed Internet service to SE Wisconsin and NE Illinois. We started by providing Internet to people and businesses in rural areas where DSL and Cable service was not available. Since then, we have grown into suburban and urban areas in both Illinois and Wisconsin. We are committed to providing reliable high speed Internet service and related services to homes and businesses in the Milwaukee-Chicago corridor and specifically Cook, DeKalb, Dupage, Kenosha, Lake, McHenry, Racine and Walworth counties.
With such a broad coverage area comes a broad base of Internet needs from our customers. E-vergent is an Internet provider that offers a wide variety of other computer related services. We also offer phone service with voice over IP (VoIP), website and email hosting, server colocation in our data center, and virtual private servers just to name a few. E-vergent can offer a truly independent and redundant connection to the wired infrastructure. Give us a call to see how we can work together.
