The Internet plays a vital role in the everyday lives of millions of people who regularly use computers and other types of electronic information technology devices in their homes, schools, and workplaces. The variety and affordability of these devices, along with compatible operating systems, software applications, and telecommunications technology, contribute to increasing use of the Internet.
