Internet Service Providers give clients access to the INternet through telephone connections as well as permenant connections. I will give you a brief history report on how ISP's were created and centralized Here is a brief summary of the history and development of ISP's Before there were ISP's the internet required some type of account from a unniversity or goverment institution and prior knowledge of Unix. Starting in the early 1990's the Internet allowed commercial traffic. There were four centralized access points located in D.C, San Franciso New Jerser and Chicago. There access points were controlled by World Com, Pacific Bell, SPrint and Ameritech. As the traffic grew the access points became highly trafficed. Therefore, more of the major telecommunication companies began building their own faster Internet Service.
Interesting Facts about ISP's in the late 1990's there were up to 10,0000 ISP's around the world but they were mostly locally serviced and relied on access to regional and national ISP's for wider connectivity. At the time one of the bigger companies that smaller ISPs relied on was America Online (AOL) AOl had origanlly started as a dial-up information service with no internet connectivity, but made a later transition later on in the 90's. It became one of the larger service providers which acclamated up to more than 25 million subscribers and branced off overseas into Australia, South America, Europe and even Asia. While this was all going on overseas different countries where first experiencing locally owned ISP's from back in the states. Now ISPs brand and offer different leves of service for their clients for better connectivity speeds such as download and upload times. Other different relevant events such as net neutrality has also been brought up as to what ISPS will embrace for their customers and who wont use it.
