History[edit]

Green Bay Net was founded in 1998 by Elliot and Gina Christenson, with the goal to be the best internet and technology provider and solutions consultant in the Green Bay market. Since then the company expanded its service to eastern Wisconsin and expanded its web services nationwide.[1]

On October 2, 2000, Elliot Christenson was quoted in U.S. News & World Report, "When you get right down to it, all they really have to do is flip the switch and we'll be out of business." commenting on the AOL Time Warner merger in 2000. [2]

Green Bay Net Free WiFi initiative on Broadway (Downtown Green Bay)[edit]

In 2007, Green Bay Net which at the time claimed Internet service membership in the thousands, partnered with On Broadway inc to deploy a free wi-fi mesh network down the length of Broadway. This system was operational until the end of 2010.[3]
