Internet access is usually obtained by a service provider. Vendors are selling various kinds of Internet service, each of them has its advantages and disadvantages. Just like when buying a garden wheelbarrow you decide what qualities should it have, how much you can afford to pay for it and so on.
But before you begin to act in this direction, ie produce a list of Internet providers, read and choose to communicate with them. If your organization or institution (university, company) already has access to the Internet, it is unlikely that you will get personal access to the network better than your organization has. In other words, if you already have Internet access, you will not have to pay money.
If your organization does not yet have Internet access, or actually has, but the trouble is that none of your department (laboratory, department, faculty) has a right to use it, you should just watch and figure out how many more potential users among your colleagues use it. Talk to them and seek support, make a proposal and/or file a claim to the higher management. Today available opportunities to access the Internet are cheap and sometimes free.
Look for a network at public libraries: some (central) have a service called Freenet - free (free) network. This information system, based of the communities, usually has a dial-up access to the Internet over the telephone. Today with the coming of Wi-fi you can use Internet just at teh cafe. Just buy a cup of coffee and use the free network.
