An Internet Service Provider (ISP) is a company that connects you to the Internet through different data transmission technology (dial-up, DSL, cable, or high-speed). To access the Internet from your home you will need to have an ISP.
You might be swayed by the ads, but do you really need to have all the bells and whistles? Will you be using it for personal reasons, small business reasons, or a larger business? Will you need a high-speed connection (for downloading music, movies, viewing images and videos online), or will you be doing very little (just checking emails, a few sites) and can get by with a dial-up or cable connection? Figure out your needs and then you will be set to make a decision about which provider will work best, what package you should be choosing, and how much you will be spending each month. Prices will vary greatly depending on what type of connection you choose.
You shouldn't just blindly go into signing on with an Internet provider – a little research will go a long way in helping you make an appropriate decision. Create a list of questions/needs and talk to as many providers as you can.
Find out who is using what and ask them about the services they are receiving. Some might say they have no troubles at all, while others might tell a different story. It's a good idea to see how happy ISP customers are before purchasing.
