Immense collection of networks that are interconnected on a global basis providing services to the general public. These services include the transferring of files among computers, hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) involving the reading and interpreting of hypertext files (web pages) that contain pictures and sounds, and operating computers from distant locations. Computers use telephone lines, optical fibers, and radio transmissions to connect networks thereby forming Internets. Thus, the Internet is really a super highway along which information travels to the electronic address of its destination computer. Along the way this information may pass through computer network to computer network several times before reaching its electronic address.
