The History of the Internet Agency sunzinet

A strong foundation for healthy growth

We sometimes have the feeling that we are part of the Internet for so long because we can still remember the time when it looked "black and white". Of course, that is true to a limited extent. Some of our team members are familiar with the Internet since its beginning, a time when no pictures have existed and when the charm of the Internet was only limited to the exchange of unformatted text on black-green tube monitors. Fortunately, that's over! Also the formation of our company in 1999 can be called historical.
