What’s an ISP?

What’s an ISP?

I get this one a lot. It seems like people are told to “check with their ISP” about this or that and they aren’t sure who (or what) their ISP is.

ISP stands for Internet Service Provider. Your ISP is who you “dial up or connect to” when you access the internet. Compnaies like AOL and Comcast are considered ISPs.
