    Arrow ISP - help

    Not sure if this is the correct place to put this but I'm wondering if anyone could offer some insight into ISP's history. By this I mean any information on who were the first ones and from where I can obtain background details, statistics on uptake and how do they make their money.

    Any help will be appreciated. Jan

    You can look at freeserve the first UK based ISP to offer pay per user baed Dial-up connection.

    Most ISPs makes money from telephone call revenue: they signs an agreement with local telecom and they get certian agreed percentage of all the calls made via the telcom systems to ISP.

    plus ISP does Hosting, web design, and many other side business including adverting.
