Two types of Internet users, people that mainly use E-Mail and the rest. The rest use the Internet for downloading data, data in many forms.
If you are just going to be using the Internet for E-Mail then this is what you should be looking for in a ISP : That is all your are really looking for in a ISP if your just a E-Mail user. This means you can choose from a wide amount of ISPs around and not be too picky.
Hourly fees - This makes it very cheap since you would spend very little on-line, all you would be doing it just downloading and sending E-Mail which takes very little time.
Gives you a E-Mail address
Has not got a download limit : You could be a E-Mail addict
That is all your are really looking for in a ISP if your just a E-Mail user. This means you can choose from a wide amount of ISPs around and not be too picky.
The rest is a a lot of people. The average user browsers the web, perhaps download items, uses E-Mail and chat with other people. The Suitable ISP for them is :
A ISP that charges on a monthly or yearly basis - This means you can buy 20 hours a month, because you know you are going to be using the Internet regularly then you can pay for it in advance and be assured of a connection.
NO download limit - some ISPs impose a download limit. A average user downloads quite a lot of data with out knowing it sometimes
Fast ISP - This means the ISP needs to have a fast connection to the web. There is no point for paying for all this time when it take too long to load a page
Has E-Mail - most ISP do
Has many type of access - A good ISP has FTP, Newsgroup and telnet access
As you can see the average user needs to be fussy if they want a good ISP. My advice is to ask around before committing to a ISP. Ask your friends who have Internet access on what their ISP are like. But always make sure you want to got with this ISP before signing on. End of Section
