Internet Service Providers
Internet Service Providers, or ISPs, allow you to access the internet from your home computer, through a modem or cable connection. We have noticed over the years that some ISPs work better with online courses than others. One important factor is whether an ISP uses a standard Netscape or Internet Explorer browser, or whether it uses a modified version of one of these, or its own proprietary browser. ISPs that use the latter (AOL is a good example), are not likely to work as well with online courses. Another important factor in choosing an ISP is the reliability and speed of the connection it offers.
