ISP Startup Solutions Key Terms
Some key terms for savvy setup of new ISP solutions or "ISP Startups"An ISP startup is often an attractive option for tech-savvy people who want to take off in a new direction as entrepreneurs. But the ISP includes a lot of setup details and issues regarding how to plan good Internet services, and how to compete with other ISPs. Knowing about some of the basic key terminology for ISP startups can help, along with a detailed business plan that addresses all of the relevant aspects below.
Turnkey ISPWhen it comes to an ISP startup, many are contemplating the benefits of offering a "turnkey service." A turnkey service is a service that is offered "ready to go" to the customer. It could also be called a holistic service.
Web hostingFor any business in any role relevant to an ISP startup, web hosting is important. Web hosting is when a company maintains a web service for another company. This happens so often that it can become difficult to unravel the commercial paper trail of how web hosting gets to an end user.
Customer supportCustomer support is the process of helping customers with things about the product or service sold that they may not understand. As one can imagine, this is ultra important in ISP businesses because there is such a high inherent learning curve for using the service.
Facilities based competitionFacilities based competition is the conflict between different telecom or other companies where services are delivered to customers differently. This is a big deal in ISP businesses because every one of them is different, with proprietary networks and gear for offering ISP solutions to customers.
Free ISPThe term "Free ISP" is a term for Internet service providers that offer versions of Internet access or services at nearly no cost. However, savvy consumers know that nothing is really free, and that the revenue for "free ISP" is paid through mandatory advertising.
