What is Internet Service Provider?

As the name suggest, an Internet Service Provider (ISP) is an organization that offer services that let you gain access to the Internet and let you use it. Such service providers are organized in different forms like commercial or profitable, non-profit, community owned or privately-owned.

To provide Internet access, ISPs employ various mediums and technologies to connect end users to their network. Some of the mediums/technologies available in the market for connecting users to network include modem acoustic coupler; telephone lines; television cable; wireless fidelity, wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) and fiber optics.

The traditional options for connecting individual systems and small businesses to the network are copper wires for dial-up, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL), modem and Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN).

To provide Internet access to customers with more demanding needs, like medium to large enterprises or other ISPs, service providers use hi-speed DSL, Ethernet, Frame Relay, ISDN Primary Rate Interface (ISDN-PRI), Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) and Synchronous Optical Networking. For such enterprises, service providers can also consider wireless access, including satellite internet access as another option.

In addition to providing Internet access, Internet Service Providers offer services like, but not restricted to, Internet transit, domain name registration and web hosting.

If we consider the ISPs in India, we will observe that the competitive spirit of ISPs not only made Internet accessible to more people, but it also brought down the cost Internet connection. They have helped India connect with the rest of the world. Thanks to IP connectivity, the BPOs and Call Centers in India have their presence felt across the globe. If we talk about the number of Internet users, India ranks amongst the top 10 countries of the world.
