6. Benefits of the Internet

Always available

The Internet is aways available for you to use, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You don't have to wait for it to open or wait for someone to make it available. It is just there, when you need it and for whatever you need.

Of course that does not mean every web site is always open. For instance it is common for bank web sites to shut down at midnight and open again at 7am. Overnight, they are updating and checking all the money transactions that have taken place over the last day.


Vast range of information

Think of any search term and type it into a search engine. We can pretty much guarantee that you will find web sites with information on that term.

It doesn't matter what you want to know about, you will find something on the Internet that can provide the information you need.


Easy to contact people

The Internet provides many ways to enable you to keep in contact with people at all hours of the day and night. From email, forums, chatrooms, telephone calls and video conferencing. You are almost spoilt for choice.

This ability has helped many companies grow from a small local company into a large, multi-national organsiation.
