Internet companies have been in the news a lot lately. With ATT and Time Warner merging (Will be called Warner media). This is because of the aggressive competition from the likes of Netflix and Amazon.
Internet companies, otherwise known as Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide customers with access to the internet. Their services are provided to charities, individuals, businesses, and private businesses. The ISP business is a very competitive one, but also very profitable due to the integral nature of having the ability to access the internet. The internet is an interconnected web. Once they have this connection, they can access everything that is connected. But of course, some people have faster connections than others, usually at a higher price. One of the most important factors of an internet company is their reliability. Luckily all the big name providers are quite reliable and allow for high speeds.
But which provider is the best? You may ask, and that comes down to preference what you need from a provider. But one thing they all have in common is tracking. Whether you know it or not, businesses and websites have a tendency to make note of all your movements. Every site you visit is documented, along with every product, video, and an image you select. This information is sold to advertisers, who will use this information to display ads specifically for you. This really isn’t that bad of a thing, ultimately; since the consumer gets to see what they want to see. In order to have a better overall understanding, we should first see how ISP’s came about. and why they ultimately decided to take part in the selling of information.

History of Internet Companies (ISPs):
It all began with personal computers, around the 80’s and with the progress of integrated circuit technology. But another important part was local area connections. Scientists began to think big. What if instead of an email being bound only to a local network, it could instead go further. Thus, with the coming changes at AT&T, an email service would be tested and connected to the internet. What followed then was a boom in activity and the rise of the internet. Prior to ISPs, the internet was funded as part of the research project by the government. There was very little commercial use of the internet until late in the 90’s. Hence, the introduction of the World Wide Web. Another reason for the rise of individual ISPs was simply because it was more economical.
In later years during the 90’s, there were tens of thousands of providers. But these providers would rely on regional/national ISPs. Ultimately, many of these companies would end up being joined or bought out by larger ISPs; Hence why we have just around 8-10 big players today. As seen in the illustration, you can see all the popular and not so popular, service providers. Now, since their origin is now covered, how exactly do these providers work? How do you get internet?
Internet Companies Services:
The way of you are able to get access to the internet is via your modem, which connects to the internet. It is able to have access to the internet due to the ISP sending and receiving data to and from the modem. In order for the modem to contact and even be able to communicate with the internet company. It must be connected to a wall outlet for a broad-band type (normal); cable, fiber optic, DSL, and satellite. It will then connect to the router and then to any devices attached to the router. When all the necessities are taken care of the modem will then do its job of transmitting and receiving data in the form of bytes.
Bytes are packets of information that when fully constructed and put together, show the desired and requested data. This data can only be obtained due to the network access point. The access point interconnects all websites and other services for accessibility. Competing internet companies all have access to the same point in given regions. Fortunately, any online services using a company different from yours will not be restricted in any way.
The more business-focused ISPs are Hosting and Transit. Hosting services are mainly for businesses that utilize servers, websites, FTP, emails, and more. Transit is a mix of the services of Access and Hosting and thus has the largest amount of bandwidth, being used for commercial and more casual use.
Each of these services involves the exchange of information. Can they access personal information from your device? Yes, but not directly. They are only able to see what you browse and explore on the internet.
Internet companies seemed to have recently gained the approval of taking and using user history. This can be seen as an invasion of one’s privacy, and it is. But it wouldn’t be fair to say that ISPs are the only ones doing it. Plenty of internet browsers do this, including the government and other organizations. We barely have privacy, to begin with at this point. While certain organizations use our information for unknown purposes. Browsers and ISPs will use the information to make some revenue, by selling it, advertisers. If a business can increase their revenue, of course, they’re going to take it.
This idea and strategy of advertising are actually very smart on part of those businesses. This can even be considered good. As customer will see ads more directed to them. You’ll see things you actually want more rather than less. So it can help you purchasing for things you didn’t even know you wanted. Overall the concept of using’s a person’s browsing determines targetted advertisements.
The landscape will be changing dramatically, ATT’s latest go ahead of merging with Time Warner will open the floodgates for others. For example, Comcast’s $65 Billion for 21st Century Fox will get the frenzy going. As a small business or customer, you will have more choices. But, what about cost? We can only speculate at this point as the internet companies seem to be aggressively adapting to changes.
Internet companies are integral for communication and data shipment/sending. Without their services, we wouldn’t have the internet like we do today. But also, without net neutrality, it would be very different as well; horrible even. An ISP should only be allowed so much control and power. Since they can hold confidential and personal information of a user.
