    Difference between Internet and Intranet

    The Internet is an open, public space, while an intranet is designed to be a private space. An intranet may be accessible from the Internet, but as a rule it's protected by a password and accessible only to employees or other authorized users.

    Internet
    • Slow access speeds (e.g. 56Kbps dial up connectivity)
    • Different types of web browsers are used to view the website (e.g. Netscape, IE, Opera)
    • Different types of operating systems are used to view the website (e.g. Windows, Mac)
    • Global audience (e.g. multilingual, different cultures)


    Intranets
    • Faster access speeds (e.g. 100Mbps LAN connectivity).
    • Standardized type of browser. Minimal or no compatibility issues
    • Standardized type of operating systems.
    • Primarily local audience

    Re: Difference between Internet and Intranet

    The internet is worldwide, and can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection. Intranet is like local internet, i.e. can only be accessed on a web of computers, like a business, or a school. things on the intranet can sometims be accessed via the internet though.

    Re: Difference between Internet and Intranet

    Internet is WAN and intranet is LAN. Internet is a global network. Intranet is meant for only a particular organization. Internet connects to web where as intranet connects some computers as a group. World wide open network is internet and world wide private network is called intranet e.g One company's all nodes are connected to each others word wide's company branches internet is for wan intranet is for LAN.

    Re: Difference between Internet and Intranet

    The Internet is a worldwide, publicly accessible series of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol (IP).
    But an 'intranet' is a private computer network that uses
    Internet protocols and network connectivity to securely share part of organizations information or operations with its employees.
