Today, it’s possible to connect to and use the internet in many different ways
Connecting to the internet requires two key ingredients:
- A device capable of connecting to the internet.
- Access to an internet service that will allow that device to get connected.
Basically, there are many types of both of the above things.
In other words, it’s possible to connect to the internet on an ever-increasing range of devices. Plus, there’ are also quite a few different types of services that allow these devices to get online.
People’s choice over the various devices and means of getting online varies according to many factors, including lifestyle (whether they’re at home or out and about), how frequently they need to access the internet (everyday for a number of hours or just occasional use), the types of things they want to use the internet to do (catch up with email or download and watch films and tv programmes), and budget (internet access companies usually charge to use their services).
