The internet is a service that is available on computer to subscribers. The
internet opens up a whole new world of communication, information and
entertainment. having access to the internet has given me a chance to explore a
totally new dimension in technology. I believe that any body who has access to the
internet will benefit greatly from this experience.
The internet service is marketed by various companies which are on the
increase on a daily basis. These companies basically offer the same package but
differ in the amounts they charge for membership. In my opinion a good company
to subscribe to is one that offers a flat rate.
In order to access the internet you require a good computer and a powerful
modem . If you have these it is much easier and faster to 'Surf the Net'. I would
recommend a 28.8 kbs modem manufactured by U.S Robotics.
The Internet can give you access to both legal & illegal sites on the net.
There is pirated software e.g. full version of games that you can access without
actually paying for them.
The internet can only be accessed with a browser. There are a few web
browsers but two main ones are Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer.
As I mentioned earlier, the internet allows everyone to access various
topics of interests on the web. The choices ranges from recreational, education,
hobbies, communications and entertainment.
There is always a risk of accessing...
