InternetProvidersbyZip.com allows U.S. residents to find a list of their local Internet and cable providers by typing a ZIP code into a search box. The search gives the user a list of local providers at a given time.
By clicking on the map that displays the number of providers in each state included on the site's front page, a user accesses a form that requests street address, apartment details and ZIP code. Once he enters these, a list of local providers and an estimate of installation and running costs for each provider appear. Details of national services such as satellite Internet providers are also supplied.
