Internet Terminology


Internet Service Providers are companies like RCN, Service Electric, and Verizon that provide access to the Internet for your computer. The service provider charges you a fee in return for a software package, username and password that allows you to connect to the Internet. Verizon will enable you to connect with DSL over your current phone line with a modem.
