The Internet connects many computers all over the world. Getting on to the Internet is also known as going on-line. Some people use modems to go on-line. If you are using the Internet at home you probably have a modem that connects you to the Internet. Big companies and some schools use a really big network of wires also known as Ethernet to connect to the Internet. Ethernet is faster than modems and can control hundreds of computers all at once.
