Internet Service Providers

Internet service providers, or ISPs, are companies that provide their customers with access to the Internet, either by dialup service or some other means of telecommunication. Internet service providers also provide their customers with e-mail addresses at which the customers can be contacted electronically. Many telecom carriers (AT&T, Sprint Nextel) provide Internet access via digital service lines, or DSL. Cable operators (Time Warner Cable, Comcast) provide Internet access via their cable networks. Many ISPs are active in the Net Neutrality debate.
