The Internet and other information and communication technology influence nearly all aspects of modern life.

Access to the Internet and the use of online services enhances educational, work and social opportunities, as well as financial, banking, wholesale and retail services for an increasing number of people. Some people telecommute using the Internet to communicate with colleagues and clients. Increased business use of the Internet in turn increases the opportunities for individuals. Business use of the Internet is discussed in the Productivity section.

The Internet is one of a number of cultural and leisure activity outlets available to people today, and also provides an outlet for creativity and personal, social and political expression.
