Most ISPs dont keep an easy database of this info.  In the case of say law enforcement, they can data mine this info, however for privacy reasons most ISPs dont keep records of this info.  It would a case by case basis and due to the manpower to data mine it usually most ISP require a warrent or court order before they will do the work.

What are he ways a typical ISP logs or stores this info? Is it typically done by DNS logs? What other ways?

How far back would these databases you speak of go back?

Thanks

What kind of records are you looking for? Bandwidth use? Signal levels? Or is this more hypothetical? If not, who is your ISP?

I read through their ToS and privacy statement, and don't see mention of it one way or another. Where did you read/learn that you should have access to ISP data? I am not familiar with Canadian law or consumer protection agencies(IE FCC). 

 

Either way, the information they would collect would be limited out of necessity. They might track what IP is assigned to you and those devices MAC addresses, and routes to certain IP's, but that tells them more "where" the traffic is coming/going, not what it is.

I'm just one of those guys who thinks "if you are collecting info on me, I should be able to see it too".
