    What is the Internet?

    Internet is a group of billions of computers connected through wired and wireless connections. These connections are made possible through the launch of a wide-area network, also called as WAN. The Internet operates through the use of heavy cables installed through the sea from one country to another. These cables transmit terabytes of data per second between countries and continents. The data transmitted through the wires occur between billions of machines connected to the Internet. Each device sends and receives pieces of information, which is also called upload and download. Uploading is when a computer sends data or request to another computer. Downloading is when a computer receives chunks of data from some other machine which is placed on some other place in the world.
