In 1996, the browser-based Internet was growing very quickly. Led by consumer demand, Independent Internet Service Providers began appearing all over the United States. Mango Bay Internet was formed and started as an ISP on January 1, 1997 offering X2 56K dial-up technology by US Robotics Corporation. Led by owner Alan P. Jacubenta, "AJ", the company initially offered access to the Northeast Ohio areas only. The early location of Mango Bay Internet was the top of a house in Parma, Ohio. AJ's sister, part owner, Dona Wengatz assisted in some technical aspects of the business eventually taking over the administrative and accounting for the business.
As the company expanded and continually added incoming PRI lines for dial-up subscribers, it eventually outgrew the residential location and moved to the current location of 1277 E. Schaaf Rd. in Brooklyn Heights, Ohio in April of 1999. At that time, the company officially added web site hosting and web site design to the services it offered.
From the start, Mango Bay Internet was and is a family-owned and operated business. For many years, relatives such as Pauline Jacubenta (mother), Leesa Jacubenta (wife), Chris Wilson (sister), Rudolph Girman (uncle), and Bob Hronek (cousin) worked at the company in various capacities. Dedication and hard work from family and employees has made Mango Bay Internet the successful company that it is today.
