Introduction to starting an ISP and selling broadband (Cable or DSL)

In this disastrous job market, everyone is looking to obtain a secured but different way of setting up a mode of earning, which is sustainable and rewarding. Starting an ISP is one such upcoming business opportunities. In this post, I am going to introduce you to starting an ISP and selling broadband (Cable or DSL) to end customers.

What is an ISP?

An ISP or Internet Service Provider is responsible for connecting the user to the rest of the internet. An ISP provides internet access through a cable or DSL to the end customers.

What does “starting an ISP” mean?

Starting an ISP or an Internet Service Provider business is referring to initiating a business where you provide internet access to the end customers. You and your company will act as an ISP and provide internet access to users in your area for probably a monthly rental package or quarterly or yearly packages.

In other words, you will become an internet provider yourself and provide access to the millions living in your area or locality.

That is a very lucrative business, and many people have moved towards starting an ISP in their localities as well. Many of these startup companies are doing very well. You can do well too!

Starting an ISP

Starting an ISP can be a very profitable business opportunity, and this is why more and more people are trying to get into this business from every corner of United States. However, it is not a walk in the park by any means. The biggest hindrance in starting an ISP business is the initial cost that is involved. The preliminary investment in this business is huge as you need to procure equipment, and construct buildings and also take care of a lot of paperwork.

With an ample amount of planning and a solid strategy to move forward in the business, one can overcome the starting problems and initial hiccups.

Let’s look into the various aspects that you need to keep in mind while starting an ISP, whether through cable or DSL.

Various Aspects to Keep in Mind

ISP Data Center: the data center is one of the most critical aspects. You must have a building to house the ISP’s data center. Buildings with raised floors to route cables are the ideal ones.

Electrical and Electronic Equipment: you must be ready to procure and install high capacity uninterrupted power supply (UPS) units and HVAC units. These should be there in any data center, along with power generation devices, normally running on diesel.

Upstream Providers: you must have multiple upstream providers linked up to your ISP services. Having multiple upstream providers is to ensure that you provide uninterrupted access to your customers. If one provider fails to serve for some reason or the other, you will still have no disconnection at your client’s end. That is very important!

Storage: with the advent of cloud technology, this part has become easier these days. However, it is not advisable to have shared storage or other hardware as well. Purchasing from an online cloud storage provider would be the best choice here.

Demarcate the area: it is very important to ensure that you know whom are you going to serve in your locality and the radius of your coverage.

These are the top few aspects to keep in mind while starting an ISP. I hope you found this post informative. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments section. I will be very happy to answer your queries.
