Free ISP?


Visitors: 602

Yes, there is such a thing as a free ISP or internet service provider. An internet service provider is a company that provides internet access, usually for a nominal fee. However, you might be surprised to find that there are Free ISP’s. If you are wondering if I am referring to the discs you receive in the mail that offer you free internet for 30 days, think again. The ISP’s I am talking about are not offering just a free trial.

So, how are these ISP’s able to offer free internet access? The answer to that will not come as a surprise. In fact, advertising is the funding source behind many free products. For instance, you can find many sites offering free MP3 downloads. However, just like the free ISP’s, these sites come with a great number of pop-up advertisements. In fact, these pop-ups can be so numerous on free internet connections offered by these ISP’s that it can become a real nuisance. It may even stall your computer and make it difficult and frustrating to surf the net.

Additionally, these free ISP’s may not offer internet, or free internet, in your area. If there is not a dialup number in your area, you may have to go without. These ISP’s may also limit the amount of time you can spend surfing the net. The amount of features that commercial ISP’s include may be lost when going with a free ISP. Most ISP’s that charge for their services are constantly coming up with new features. This is not the case with ISP’s that offer free internet services. Free ISP’s may also provide a poor quality connection with more interruptions that commercial ISP’s.

If you are looking for an ISP that is a step up from the free ISP’s, the answer might be right in front of you. You see, a lot of ISP’s that offer free internet services also have a premium package available for a low cost. In fact, offering free internet access can be a way for these ISP’s to attract customers. Once a customer sees that they enjoy using the ISP, they may decide to purchase unlimited access from them rather than their competitors.

Before accepting the terms and conditions of your ISP, always be sure you have read and understand every thing. When you are agreeing to free internet access you want to make especially sure that your ISP is truly offering the free internet access you think they are. You also want to make sure you know how much your internet time is limited to, if that is the case. You also want to look for any additional charges or long distance charges that may apply for your ISP.
