2. ISP

ISP stands for 'Internet Service Provider'.

An ISP is a company that provides access to the internet for business and individuals.

They usually charge a monthly fee for this service.

They will issue you with a user name and password and very often an email address.

For individuals, the ISP normally provides a modem through which you can log in and access the internet via one of the ISPs servers.

Examples of ISPs in the UK are (in no particular order):

  • Sky.
  • Virgin Media
  • Plus Net
  • BT Infinity
