FISPA was founded in May 1996 to represent the interests of Internet Solution Providers. We call our members Solution Providers because our members are companies who provide a whole range of services including Internet Access, Web Hosting, Web Design, and an ever increasing number of other services which all use the Internet to facilitate a solution.
  • We offer our members education and a place to network and facilitate discussion.
  • We provide discounts on products and services which we collectively use.
  • We educate the public about the importance of the Internet industry.
  • We support quality standards and practices for Internet Solutions Providers.
  • We leverage our resources to present the concerns of the Internet industry.
FISPA was created to meet these challenges.
