Becoming an ISP

  1. Feb 8, 2007 #1
    Hiya guys,

    I am thinking of becoming a small (for now) ISP here in my country (Indonesia), and I have some questions that I hope you guys can answer...

    Well, here goes:
    1. Where can I get some general information on becoming an ISP? Like the steps to be taken, the skills/knowledge I need, etc, etc. Or maybe one of you guys already have an ISP or works in an ISP company and willing to teach a newbie? :tongue:

    2. Bandwidth is quite expensive here, it can cost up to USD8000 for a 2Mbps line per month. So I'm really interested in getting bandwidth from abroad, either using satellite or something else. I googled and found several companies (most of them in the U.S) that offer this service, but I'm not sure if those companies are reliable. Can you guys recommend some bandwidth providers that are reliable and whose prices are competitive? They can be located in the States, Hong Kong, Singapore, or wherever. Just as long as they do deliver what they offer (and not too expensive)...

    Any more things I should know (or ask)?

    Any information you guys can offer is greatly appreciated.
