What is an ISP
Internet Service Provider, or ISP, is a company like Xfinity, Spectrum, Cox, or AT&T that provides your internet either through coaxial (cable), DSL (telephone), or fiber cables. If you do not live near a wired connection you might need satellite internet like HughesNet, although satellite internet is not the best option due to its data caps, slow speeds, high price, and unreliability. If you have the option of a wired connection I would recommend that you consider it first before thinking about satellite internet.
Depending on where you live you may only have one to two options, if you live in a larger city you may have more. Click Here to find a list of ISPs that operate in your area using broadbandnow.com (United States Only).
