How we got started
e-vergent‘s roots go back to the early years of commercial internet service. Beginning in 1995, our company emerged as Wisconsin Internet, Inc. As Wisconsin Internet, Inc., we provided dial-up internet, T1 internet, website hosting, webpage design, email hosting, and consulting. Since 1995, we have been a member of RAMAC, Racine Chamber of Commerce. We are also a founding member of TRO, Racine Technology Organization, and a proud member of the Wisconsin State Telecommunications Association.
As high-speed options replaced dial-up internet and the internet continued to become a crucial tool for business, we started exploring high-speed alternatives. 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. Our commitment is to provide reliable high-speed internet and other web-related services to homes and businesses in the Milwaukee-Chicago corridor. Our customers are specifically in 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 web-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.
