What is Internet?
The Internet is a worldwide, publicly accessible series of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol (IP). It is a “network of networks” that consists of millions of smaller domestic, academic, business, and government networks, which together carry various information and services, interlinked Web pages and other documents of the World Wide Web.

The Internet and the World Wide Web are not synonymous. The Internet is a collection of interconnected computer networks & the Web is a collection of interconnected documents and other resources, linked by hyperlinks and URLs. The Internet consists of the computers and networks that handle Internet Protocol (IP) data packets. The World Wide Web is one of the services accessible via the Internet.

It connects millions of computers together globally, forming a network in which any computer can communicate with any other computer as long as they are both connected to the Internet.
