High-quality service and support are the most important qualities to seek from an Internet Service Provider (ISP).
A dependable company uses the newest technology, is knowledgeable, patient and offers technical support to answer questions or walk you through any problems that may arise when online.
All things being equal, there’s little distinction between the technical operation of a good national company and a good local company. The prices for local providers are as competitive as national companies. However, a larger provider may offer such enhanced services as filtered content options, web-based email, and spam and email filtering (which is important if you intend on using the email address the ISP provides).
Shop around and compare prices, speed, etc. Also consider a bundling deal with your phone or cable provider. See which setup works best for you and your budget.Setting Up an Internet Connection >>
