Digital Express Group, predecessor to DIGEX, was founded by Doug Humphrey and Mike Doughney in the basement of Mr. Humphrey's townhouse in Greenbelt, Maryland in 1991, offering web hosting services and Internet access.
In 2003, WorldCom acquired the remainder of the company.
Verizon acquired Worldcom in 2006 and integrated the company into Verizon Business.
In 1996, ISP-TV began producing original video content in one of the first "cyberstudios" in Laurel, Maryland. Shows included "Head" (a beer show) and "Meeks Unfiltered" with MSNBC correspondent Brock Meeks.
Digex also streamed Bud Bowl during the Super Bowl for Anheuser-Busch. In 1999 Apple hired Digex to stream the Star Wars trailer in QuickTime format. This industry first saturated the internet bandwidth at the time but proved that video streaming had a future.
