Patent Number: 8,788,932

Title: Methods and systems for providing web pages to web browsers

Abstract: Methods and systems described herein can allow for a service provider, such as an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to provide Web pages to users' Web browsers at periodic intervals. The content can include graphics, text, audio and video clips. In contrast to the traditional banner or pop-up advertisements available today, the methods and systems can allow content Web pages to be displayed on users' Web browsers without the user requesting specific Web sites. The ISPs can become distributors of advertising content, potentially gaining new revenue streams.
