The Internet, also known as the Net, is a global network of computers that all share the same communications protocols and can exchange information with one another. Users can download files, send e-mail, and retrieve a variety of information for personal or business purposes. It is unlike any other communications medium we have ever encountered because it is two way. It allows people of all ages, creeds, and countries to freely share ideas, stories, data, and opinions. Easy to use, windows-based browsers have made Internet surfing increasingly popular. Technological advancements in Internet software continues to improve the connectivity on the Net. For more information on the Internet, please contact your local Internet service provider.
