Herunet as a precondition of accomplishing the virtual society in Abovyan city
Internet appeared in its incipiency in Armenia for the time of 90s, but for many years the feasibility of caring out the Dial Up connection was rather impossible in Abovyan city. Only in 2002 had been made the first attempts in this sphere the premier internet club was opened which couldnt secure the demands of the Abovyan internet users as this city had a great request. Although the fact of opening internet clubs existence in turn was quite gratifying but the problem of satisfying high speed was still left unsolved.

The scantiness of Dial Up services level became a hard process for having internet at home and also pleasant case when finally the connection was settled after many inconvenient attempts. Thought the service level of Dial Up improves day by day (for being profitable) but its speed will always depend on transmission abilities of phone lines and wont meet the advanced internet users demands…
