If you use an Internet service provider, you pay that organization directly. It may be by the year, month, hour, or some combination thereof. The organization providing the service will determine rates and payment schedules. Most provide Internet services such as remote login, Gopher, and file transfer protocol which connect you to host computers across the country or across the world. There is no additional charge for this type of connection. You pay only the standard service charge levied by the organization supplying you with Internet connectivity. You may, however, incur charges on your monthly telephone statement if your modem and PC are not within local calling distance of a provider. You must make a long distance call, but it will not be included with your Internet service charge. For more information on paying for Internet service, contact your local Internet service provider.
