Correct Answer - Option 3 : Internet Service Provider

The correct answer is Internet Service Provider.

  • Internet Service Provider (ISP)
    • It refers to a company that provides access to the Internet to both personal and business customers.
    • Data may be transmitted using several technologies, including dial-up, DSL, cable modem, wireless or dedicated high-speed interconnects.
    • An ISP is considered to be an information service provider, storage service provider, Internet network service provider (INSP), or a mix of all of them.
  • An Internet service provider is also known as an Internet access provider (IAP).
  • Today, ISPs are usually cable companies or mobile phone companies that offer Internet subscriptions in addition to TV or mobile communications services. 
  • The technology was developed to provide access to the general public through the World Wide Web in the late 1980s.
  • Initially, consumers were able to gain limited access through a few ISPs—America Online (AOL) being one of the most recognized names at the time—that used dial-up connections using a phone line.
