Selecting an Internet Provider

How to choose an Internet Service Provider
An account with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) is necessary if you want to connect your business to the Internet (or even if you want to connect for personal use). There are many companies offering ISP services in the USA – both big and small.

The best thing to do is decide what your business needs for the internet and then shop around the various ISP’s and see what services they offer. Then match your business needs with services offered to obtain the best ISP for your business.

When looking at your business needs consider the following:

  • What type of activities are you going to be doing online? Is it mainly e-mail and web site browsing?

  • Do you require high-speed Internet access? Do you want to access data that requires broadband? Data such as movies, music or graphics? This could mean that you require a service plan where you receive high-speed Internet access (such as ADSL or Cable) but generous download amounts. You don’t want to be paying through the nose for each extra mb (megabyte) that you download.
