It is beyond the scope of this document to discuss how you can get onto the Internet yourself. However, many of the service providers listed above provide Internet connections as well as newsfeeds and will help you through the process of getting onto the Internet. Furthermore, the book "Connecting to the Internet" (see the "Bibliography" section below) is a step-by-step to the process of getting connected, and contains a more extensive list of Internet service providers.
