Connecting via a Commercial Online Service

A typical dial-up or broadband ISP does nothing but connect you to the Internet and provide you with an email address and inbox—and, in some cases, storage space for your own personal Web page. You can probably find a few local ISPs operating in your city or town, or you can turn to one of a handful of national ISPs. These national ISPs offer dial-up numbers all across the United States (great for when you're traveling).

tip

The two largest national ISPs are AT&T Worldnet (www.att.net) and EarthLink (www.earthlink.net). You can find a list of more than 10,000 national and local ISPs at The List (thelist.internet.com).
