You may think you only need to make a few phone calls to companies near you when looking for an ISP. But there’s actually far more to the process than that. Prior to even looking for internet service providers, you need to assess your current and future needs. A recent study showed that most people have no idea about the amount of data they use in a month. Do you? If not, an easy way to know is to look at your past internet bills to see what kind of data package you are signed up for. Depending on your ISP, your bill may either show your data usage for that month, or you may be able to see your usage for previous months by visiting your ISP’s web site.
