☻↓The Internet↓☻

The Internet or the Net is a collection of computers, all linked together, to share information globally. It was first developed in the U.S. by two universities who were both working on the same contract and wanted to share their data. They were faxing information back and forth and then retyping it until they came up with a piece of software called Unix to Unix Copy Program or UUCP .
The Internet was born and has mushroomed outward from that point.
There are 4 things that are necessary to "get on the net" with a full graphicinterface (picture, sounds, animation,etc...).
*. A computer - preferably with a fast processor and lots of memory
*. A modem - preferably high speed digital (56,000 baud if high speed isnot available)
*. Browser Software - often installed with your operating system or can be downloaded off the Internet
*. An Internet Service Provider (ISP) which is a service that connects your home or office computer to the Internet
Once you are connected you will have access to Email , the World Wide Web ( WWW ), Social Networks , File Transfer Protocol ( ftp ), Instant messaging , Search Engines , Ecommerce and other Internet Services.
