Oleane was one of the first ISPs in France, created in 1990, from UUCP technology. First connected to PSINet, with Telebit modems, international connectivity moved to UUNet in 1991.
Real IP connections arrived in 1992, with a direct PIPEX (UK) 64 kbit/s link.
Oleane was created by Jean-Michel Planche, with the help of Paul Rolland, Jean-Pierre Le Couedic, Christophe Wolfhugel and Benoit Grangé.
Oleane was sold in March 1998 to France Telecom, and ceased to exist as an independent IP services provider around June 2006.
