What is the Internet?

            The internet is made up of millions of computers linked together around the world in such a way that information can be sent from any computer to any other 24 hours a day. These computers can be in homes, Forces, schools, universities, government departments, or businesses small and large. The internet is often described as 'a network of networks' because all the smaller networks of organizations are linked together into the one giant network called the internet.
            The internet has developed a very strong community base where information, software and expert advice are freely shared and for this reason users have developed a very strong protective stance on freedom of speech, freedom from commercial interests, netiquette and unsuitable material on the web.
