What is the Internet?


The Internet is the global computer network that links billions of devices worldwide.

It consists of millions of interconnected networks and carries communications and information using the internet protocol suite (TCP/IP), which was developed by Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn.

As well as its original use to access web pages and send emails, the internet is now used to carry traditional telephony services and files.

The origins of the internet lie in the ARPANET, which was built as a backbone for communication between academic and military networks by the United States government. Research was first commissioned by the US in the 1960s.

Aren’t the Internet and the World Wide Web the same thing?
