Before the official Internet, there were many other networks that gave it their best, but ultimately failed. One great example is the ahead of its time Viewtron System by AT&T.

The Viewtron System was only launched in specific markets, like Florida, and gave users one of the first telephone-based information services. Similar to the widespread dial up of the early 90′s, users could check stocks, weather, sports, and other information, all in the early years of 1983.
