Resources about and for Internet Service Providers (ISPs)... companies which provide access to the Internet, via dialup connections, leased lines, etc.
NOTE that entries for actual ISPs should be added under the REGIONAL category for the parts of the world they serve (for instance, National ISPs in the U.S.A. would go under Regional/USA). Sites that do not offer Internet access, such as companies that specialize in web hosting and domain name registration, don't belong under here since they have their own Open Directory category elsewhere.
If you find another good worldwide list of ISPs, you can
add that under Regional. ISP lists that only deal with some portion of the world should be added under the category for the parts of the world they cover. You may want to add "[ISPLIST]" to the beginning of the title of the site, to set it apart from the normal listings.

An ISP Directory is a site which lists multiple ISPs and ISP services. ISP Directories make searching for a new ISP easier and quicker than visiting and comparing ISPs on many different sites.
To be listed in the Computers/Internet/Access_Providers/Directories category, a site must meet the following guidelines:
- Must list multiple ISPs.
- Must include information for Each ISP (services offered, areas covered, etc.)
- ISP Detail pages must link to the ISPs site. (links to other sites that in turn link to ISP site not accepted -- this means affiliate links!)
This category is NOT for ISPs to list their services. Please only list your site if it falls into this category.
Directory sites which only list NATIONAL ISPs and neglect to list _local_ or _regional_ ISPs are not likely to get a listing on the basis that the list is quite incomplete. There are only a handful of national providers but many local ones. To see the same set of national providers listed in most every locality is a dead giveaway that the directory is a sham.
