My company is opening an office several states away.  I am unfamiliar with this area.  Is there an easy way to determine which ISP's service an area or address within the united states?

    The two most likely are the local phone and cable companies.  I've tried some of the web sites that claim to look up that info but so far they've been nothing but data collection sites.  A way to collect email addresses for spam.

    I'd look up some business in the area or the chamber of commerce or city hall and call them to get started.
