OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Data Transmission Network Corporation (DTN) (Nasdaq: DTLN) announced today the formation of a partnership with Atlantic Financial, an online brokerage firm in Boston, to bring DTN's Internet financial information service, DTN.IQ, to Atlantic Financial's customers. The partnership allows individuals with an online brokerage account with Atlantic Financial to receive dynamically updated quotes, news, charts and more from DTN.IQ.

Bruce Fenton, President Atlantic Financial said, "Our goal is to provide state-of-the-art services to our clients. It so happens that we can do this with DTN.IQ and at a price unmatched anywhere else today."
