Definition of CYBERSHORE :
Taken from the word “cyberspace” meaning the online world of computers and especially the Internet; and the word “shoreline” representing the Connecticut shore.
Cybershore is an ISP (Internet Service Provider) which was started in Madison, CT, back in 1996 by Chris Anatra, its current owner and President. Chris owned a software development company called NECS, Inc. (and still does), but wanted to get involved with this “new” thing called the Internet. Believe it or not, at that time, many people were calling the Internet a “flash in a pan” and were expecting “interactive TV” to instead take over. Obviously history tells us which side won.
In a few years, Cybershore had almost 5,000 customers on the shoreline accessing the Internet via their trusty old 56k modems. But customers were hungry for speed, and that old modem technology was on the way out. Cybershore attempted to heavily invest in DSL and wireless technology, but found it was fighting a losing battle against the phone company and its government lobbyists. In fact, almost all of the small ISP’s in Connecticut were forced out of business as they could not afford to compete against the phone company, and the cable companies would not allow them to share access. In a few short years, almost all of Cybershore’ s Internet access customers had left.
Chris then decided to have Cybershore specialize in designing web sites, creating eCommerce online stores, hosting them and providing email and other services for local businesses in Connecticut. A typical customer of Cybershore is located on the shoreline and appreciates having the expertise of a local company help them with their web and email needs.
