No, you didn't. Hosting is an internet service provided by an ISP, a
"Hosting ISP". It may not provide (your) Internet Access, which is just
ONE of the things an ISP may do. One of them. Some ISPs do not provide
internet connections at all; perhaps only email.

ISP should not be seen as synonymous with an "Access provider ISP".

I have seen the press making this mistake all the time. Amazing how it
has now become received wisdom.

Even Wikipedia gets this right.
