We’re building internet the way it was meant to be.
EarthLink is taking the headache out of your internet connection. Whether you need high-speed internet access, secure premium email, web hosting, or security tools, we’ve got you covered. We know great internet — because we helped build it.
Get The Right Connection with EarthLink
That means finding our customers the right speed at the right price — that’s what getting the right connection for you means to us. Serving 78% of households in the contiguous U.S., we’re always expanding our reach and our products to serve our customers better.
EarthLink is a top U.S. internet service provider offering access to fast, secure internet to millions of households nationwide.
Trive Capital, four partners who serve as part of the active leadership team, acquired the company in 2019. Now, EarthLink brings new technology, fresh talent, and exciting goals to a revitalized organization. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, we emerged as a pioneering tech leader in the 1990s. Now an iconic name in telecommunications, EarthLink leads the way through key partnerships and product innovation.
EarthLink’s mission is to help our customers create connections with the world around them. For us, the Right Connection means we’ll find you the right internet speed at the right price for your household. But it also means we understand the essential nature of the internet in our daily lives and how important it is to stay connected to what’s vital: family, friends, work, and school (and everything else).
In addition to helping our customers enjoy their everyday life, we’re also building a strong community with — and for — our employees, because we know success starts here.
Our people are an essential part of our success. We depend on our team to offer the best products, services, and customer experience possible.
We are committed to creating a place where one person can truly make a difference. To do this, we challenge ourselves to evolve as a company, collaborate to develop the solutions of tomorrow, and empower our team to own their skills and opportunities. All of this pushes our business forward and makes us a stronger company.
As a certified Great Place to Work in 2020 and 2021, we are linked by our core beliefs in integrity, transparency, and respect. And that comes through in the numbers. When asked,

Our CEO, Glenn Goad, schedules time to speak with individual employees one-on-one getting to know them and giving them the chance to ask any questions or make suggestions.

Building Better Internet
We helped build the on ramp to the information superhighway back in 1994, but a lot has changed since then. One thing that hasn’t? Our commitment to bringing the best possible internet service to our customers. We’re focused on finding the right connection for each household — the right speed and the right products at the right price. Whether you need a basic plan to stay connected, or you’re looking for speeds up to 1 Gig with tools to keep your data and your family safer, we’ve got your covered.
The internet isn’t slowing down, and neither are we.
Bringing Our Customer Service Home
At EarthLink, we’re always looking for ways to better serve our customers — both in the services we offer and our customers’ experience. That’s why it has been a priority for us to bring more of our customer service and support to the United States. We’ve opened a call center in Wise County, Virginia, and we are in the process of building a new, state-of-the-art facility there.
This is an important step in our ongoing efforts to provide an outstanding experience for our customers and in supporting our communities in the U.S.
Why Wise, VA?
So how did a company located in Atlanta decide to bring customer service to Virginia? Our CEO, Glenn Goad, saw two opportunities: first, the area offers a business-friendly environment, valuable existing infrastructure, and a highly-skilled workforce. Glenn also grew up there and his experiences helped form the business leader he is today.
Giving back to the community is a priority for EarthLink, and the new sales and service center in Norton is the start of a long partnership that will benefit our community and our customers.
