Internet Access Providers: An International Resource Directory by Greg R. Notess



This directory provides descriptive information on a wide range of electronic bulletin boards, private companies, and regional networks that offer for as little as $10 per month-dial-in access to the Internet. The book is aimed both at those with no current access but with a minumum of computer literacy, as well as those who are familiar with the Internet and who are looking for non-work access. The directory covers Internet providers worldwide. The major focus of the directory is on dial-up time-sharing accounts that offer full interactive Internet connections. At a minimum, providers offer at least a telnet connection. SLIP, PPP and dedicated line connections to the Internet are covered in less detail. Some known providers are omitted either at their own request or because their plans were to tentative to be included. Other services such as Nyx, one of the first free Internet access providers are excluded because they no longer offer the full range of Internet options. Information under each listing has been gathered primarily by questionnaire responses from the providers. Except for the most recent additions, the entry information was then verified with the organization. Information was also taken from press releases, guest accounts or other informational files on the Internet.
