    Without an ISP (Internet Service Provider), you don't have access.

    You could, in effect, become your own ISP by entering into a peering agreement at a major exchange. This would be outwith the financial resources of most normal people though

    I'm usually the one that posts these, but mine are always relevant.

    That was a little uncalled for. He knows what sarcasm is, that sarcasm was being used, and that the concept contained in the sarcasm would NOT actually function for the purpose at hand. Therefore, the sarcasm itself was slightly misplaced as it did not pertain to the question put forth.
