How about these distinctions?

- National Public Radio vs. the radio.
- British Broadcasting Company vs. broadcasting.
- American Telephone and Telegraph vs. the telephone.
- The World Wide Web vs. other types of webs.

Remember, the _Internet_ was one distinct system developed by government
agencies and educational institutions for a specific purpose. It evolved
from the _ARPANET_ (all caps acronym) which was dismantled several years

Other networks in general may be connected by LAN or WAN technology,
but can one call them an _internet_?
