The Internet is a global network of computers using a common language called TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol and the Internet Protocol) to communicate with one another. This is a vast super network of millions of networks and billions of computers. It is huge!
The Internet is primarily used for serving the World Wide Web or just the web for short as well as emails, video streaming, TV and even phone calls.
There are many other uses for the Internet, but the web is probably the best known and most used. If you thought the web was the Internet, well that is understandable but it is just part of the great network that is the Internet.
There are 2 billion internet users in the world.
Hundreds of billions of emails are sent every day.
Billions of searches are made via Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines every day.
