AASP - American Alliance of Service Providers - ISP Association
Written by Web Master   
Saturday, 12 June 2004

Welcome to AASP                   July 2008 Newsletter  

                                                    New AASP Business Message Care

   

AASP, the American Alliance of Service Providers (an association of independent Internet Service Providers),  was founded in January 2000 to unify ISP's as a group and leverage their aggregate size and resources to the common good of the membership. Although our membership is comprised of Internet Service Providers, the role of ISPs has become diverse over time and their services reflect a wide spectrum of the Internet industry -- Internet Service Providers, solutions providers, connectivity providers, hosting companies, web designers, CLEC's and other technology and Internet relevant companies. AASP is much more than a giant buying group; as it provides many resources for its ISP members. AASP's resources include information in areas such as education, legal, political, marketing, upcoming technology, forums, and the like. In fact the membership itself is one of the greatest resources available because the members share information, insights, connections and volunteer to help each other in specific areas. AASP has strategic alliances with other Internet service industry organizations whose efforts also support the common good of AASP's ISP association members.  AASP often tests new and/or upcoming technology and services to determine strengths and weakness and report that information to the Independent Internet Service Providers so they can make wise, informed decisions prior to allocating monies and resources.  We facilitate the distribution of information to the ISP association membership on matters that lobby groups need their help with. AASP keeps an eye on what is happening within the industry and addresses solutions that will help the membership achieve additional revenues, reduce churn, acquire new customers, reduce or eliminate financial loss and even excel in a rapidly changing industry.
