The Internet is a borderless, open network through which users can exchange information across corporate and national boundaries.
The Internet also provides a forum for exchanging hypertext multimedia information (text, images, sound). Internet users, who currently number about 40 million, collect and supply multimedia information and exchange e-mail and news on a global scale.
The Internet will continue to grow as a multimedia information exchange medium, and will create new markets as it does so.
