The Internet got its name from the Internet Protocol, which is the basic communications protocol used by every computer on the Internet. The Internet connects a large number of computers and helps to exchange data, news and opinions. The Internet is able to support communications using the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) suite or its subsequent extensions/follow-ons, and/or other IP-compatible protocols.

 The Internet is a network of networks with the help of which the users can search anything and everything in the world, connect to different users along the globe. Buy things and play games. The ATTC Internet Certification will guide you to surf and enjoy the benefits of ‘net’ (as it is popularly known) and open a storehouse of knowledge for you.
