MartNet Communications - Company Profile
MartNet is a privately owned Internet Service Provider (ISP) located in Philadelphia, PA. Our primary business office is in South Philadelphia, and we also maintain a research and development lab in University City, West Philadelphia. Our servers are housed in an Internet Peering (NAP) and Co-Location facility at the famous North American Building, AKA 401 North Broad Street in Center City, Philadelphia.

MartNet offers a wide range of Business and Personal Internet services, all of which are competitively priced.

Being a Regional Internet Service Provider gives us several advantages, which help us, offer better service to our customers. We offer a more personal level of support if you run into trouble using the system. We can test and implement the newest Internet technologies quickly without a lot of overhead or system downtime, and it is easy to make these features available to you. We are always testing out new software and features, and when they're rock-solid, documentation is posted in the Support section of our Web site. If you want to do something specific and do not see it listed as a supported option, please let us know! Chances are we're already working on it, and we invite everyone to help in the beta testing.

MartNet also maintains an extensive collection of hard to find and vintage software in the infamous MartNet FTP Archives. Feel free to download as much stuff as you like. We maintain the Archive as a labor of love, in hopes that the computing platforms of the past will never be forgotten! With the recent surge of Emulators flooding the Net, the demand for vintage software has grown, since you no longer need a real piece of hardware (such as the Immortal Apple //) to run vintage software. Look to the past to see where the future will take us!


The MartNet Philosophy
We understand how difficult it can be for small companies without an army of Engineers to get connected to the Internet, and use the Internet as an effective way to communicate their ideas and reach a worldwide audience. Our goal at MartNet is to develop technical solutions that allow any individual or small business to effectively use the Internet, both as a marketing tool and as a communications medium--at a price that they can easily afford. We believe the best way to achieve this goal is through the use of standard, extensible, inexpensive hardware and software instead of proprietary, custom, expensive solutions common throughout the Internet today.

MartNet Communications maintains professional working relationships with talented local programmers, artists, graphic designers, and Internet Marketing firms, who make their talents available to our customers at a reasonable cost. Together, we provide our customers with the best possible Internet Solutions at the lowest possible cost.


Company History
MartNet Communications was founded in 1996 by Nicholas P. Schummer and K. Nikolas Weidenbacher in hopes of offering reliable, affordable, and easy-to use Internet Access and Web Site Hosting.

Back in 1996, we ran MartNet out of our house in Philadelphia in our spare time, Word spread quickly, and suddenly we outgrew the house, ran out of 'spare-time', and realized that we had grown a rock solid business. MartNet has become a full-time career for us.

Our primary business office is in South Philadelphia, and we also maintain a research and development lab in University City, West Philadelphia. Our servers are housed in an Internet Peering (NAP) and Co-Location facility at the famous North American Building, AKA 401 North Broad Street in Center City, Philadelphia. We have sustained working relationships with many Freelance Programmers, Graphic Designers, Web Developers, and Illustrators, all of whom make their talents available to MartNet customers at a reasonable cost.
