Are you serious? After such a sloppy post I seriously doubt that you are able to run a company.

Just one. A guy who is actually able to do what was supposed to be your task. Find that guy and let him run the company on your behalf. A big bonus if he is be able to spell out his words and use capitalization when he asks for help on a forum.

As you're asking things the way you do I doubt you have any added value to market to potential customers (and cheap rates is not added value) to start with so you won't be able to gain a foothold in an already overpopulated market anyway, let alone even think about outsmarting the already killing competition. Since it's a dog-eat-dog market you'll be making no money for years to come so instead I suggest you start working at a provider, hang around for a few years and take it from there. Practically speaking your bank account is the limit as you can only rent as much goods and services as you are willing to pay for quality-wise but that isn't it: you need a plan first and to me it sounds you haven't got any. Another suggestion could be to search for "How to start your own ISP business" (or rather "How to start your own business") or visit your local Chamber of Commerce for information.
