World Wide Access
WorldWide Access, also known as WWA, was an Internet Service Provider based in Chicago, Illinois. It was acquired by Verio in 1998. WorldWide Access was actually a service mark of the company, which was called Computing Engineers, Inc.: "...although no one but the lawyers called us that."
WorldWide Access operated from 1993 until 1998, when it was acquired by Verio. At that time, WWA was located on the nineteenth floor of the Civic Opera Building at 20 N. Wacker Dr., where it had moved from the seventh floor six months earlier. Prior to its move to the Civic Opera Building, the firm's initial offices were located in Vernon Hills at the home of the Vronas and in Chicago at the home of Greg Gulik. The Vernon Hills office primarily handled customer service, sales, and new customer signup while the Chicago office was primarily responsible for technical support.

But the channel is always there, and it is our business to keep it open, to have access to the deepest part of ourselves.”
—Saul Bellow (b. 1915)
