    Like the title says, how do I do it? What equipment do I need?

    I'm pretty sure I don't need a license but I don't know.

    uhm buddy unless your a millionaire you won't be able to do it. isp's require a lot of specialized equipment to tap into the internet backbone and etc. i don't even know anything about it really, other than that fact it costs a TON of money lol

    How are you pretty sure you don't need a license, when you say you don't know. Why on earth would you want to be your own ISP?

    At&t just came into our neighborhood with U-Verse ..Internet download speeds up to 18mps Here in the states that is quite fast for home use..I wonder if its any good? I am sure its cheaper than starting your own ISP

    you ready to pay a $xxx,xxx a month to be plugged directly into the internet backbone? Not to mention a few million in having it set up, and then another couple $xxx,xxx for equipment.

    A lot of internet provider lease the backbones of other providers.
    If you want a faster connection and have the money for it, then incorporate yourself and rent a full T1. Then you write it off as an expense.

    I noticed an internet provider started up in my area that seems to resell another ISP's service. I'm not sure quite how it works but this certainly seems like the first step to take.

    If you just want a fast connection look into T1 providers in your area.

    Cheers!

    My brother used to pay around $ 1500.00 or so a month for a dedicated conection from AT&T, I'm not sure about the speed but it was enough for about 10 servers he had.
