  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  ISP  /I-S-P/  Common  abbreviation  for  Internet  Service  Provider, 
  a  kind  of  company  that  barely  existed  before  1993.  ISPs  sell  Internet 
  access  to  the  mass  market.  While  the  big  nationwide  commercial  BBSs 
  with  Internet  access  (like  America  Online,  CompuServe  GEnie,  Netcom, 
  etc.)  are  technically  ISPs,  the  term  is  usually  reserved  for  local  or 
  regional  small  providers  (often  run  by  hackers  turned  entrepreneurs) 
  who  resell  Internet  access  cheaply  without  themselves  being  information 
  providers  or  selling  advertising.  Compare  {NSP}.
