The information on the internet is contained in websites and on webpages.

To connect to the internet you need an Internet Service Provider or ISP.

Your mobile phone company, home phone, cable television provider or even your local supermarket chain can offer you an internet connection.

A broadband internet connection allows you to access the internet.

The address bar has the address of the website you are on.

Every website has an address, which is also called a URL.

For example, the URL for the BBC website is: www.bbc.co.uk
