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):
- Virgin Media
- Plus Net
- BT Infinity
