I don’t think it did.

The final restrictions on carrying commercial traffic over the Internet didn’t 
end until 1995. Prior to that it was restricted to special access like 
government and some university departments.

AOL was one of the early pioneers of the Internet in the mid-1990s, and the 
most recognized brand on the web in the United States. It originally provided a 
dial-up service to millions of Americans. In 2004 there were more than 600 
million people internationally using email.

And another note from Wikipedia — While Katie is mentioned as Chuck’s wife 
everywhere he is mentioned, "Chuck Durrett" has his own page but "Kathryn 
McCamant" does not.
