A global system of interconnected computer networks

December 14, 2009 Leave a comment

The Internet is a global network connecting millions of computers. More than 100 countries are linked into exchanges of data, news and opinions. Unlike online services, which are centrally controlled, the Internet is decentralized by design. Each Internet computer, called a host, is independent. Its operators can choose which Internet services to use and which local services to make available to the global Internet community. Remarkably, this anarchy by design works exceedingly well. There are a variety of ways to access the Internet. Most online services, such as America Online, offer access to some Internet services. It is also possible to gain access through a commercial Internet Service Provider (ISP).

It must be understood that the Internet is not synonymous with World Wide Web. Web is a way of accessing information over the medium of the Internet. It is an information-sharing model that is built on top of the Internet. The Web uses the HTTP protocol, only one of the languages spoken over the Internet, to transmit data. The Web is just one of the ways that information can be disseminated over the Internet. The Internet, not the Web, is also used for e-mail, which relies on SMTP, Usenet news groups, instant messaging and FTP. So, the Web is just a portion of the Internet, albeit a large portion, but the two terms are not synonymous and should not be confused.

Mobile phones, data cards, and cellular routers allow users to connect to the Internet from anywhere there is a cellular network supporting that device’s technology.
