Hour 3. Choosing an Internet Provider > What's an Internet Account?

What's an Internet Account?

When you sign up with—subscribe to—an Internet service, you get what's call an Internet account.

With an Internet account, you get the right to use the provider's Internet service, your very own email address (so you can send and receive email), and all of the other information you need to set up your computer for accessing the Internet through the service. From most providers, you may also get any communications or client software you need (see Hour 2, "What Hardware and Software Do You Need?").
