Thanks for ur information.. Actually we're commenting so we're writing short form. I know that it's Internet. But from my information it stands for INTERconnected NETwork OK! It doesn't stands for INTERnational NET!! Try to research.. OK owais!!!!!!! On wikipedia you can find the answer..
Its no 'NET' Its actually "INTERNET", If you will say net it will be like you are saying about net(tied up ropes), "INTER" in it refers to international and "NET" in it is actually that net which i told,so it means it we all are connected to a international net and can communicate to each other because all ropes are perpendicular and touched to each other.
Sorry for saying that much :P
