WAP vs Internet

The Internet refers to the world-wide interconnection of computers to enable easier sharing of data, video, or even voice signals. The Internet is a wide network connection made up of smaller network connections, for example, local area networks or wide area networks, and one can easily choose what to share with others or what to receive from others. WAP refers to wireless application protocol, and this is used by people who own some handheld devices like mobile phones to exchange information such as emails or even to download music. Some of the wireless networks that are supported by WAP are the coded division multiple access and the global systems for mobile applications.

To access the Internet using computers, one can use large-sized browsers like Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer.

WAP that uses the Internet uses mini-browsers like the opera mini which have files with small sizes so that they can comfortably fit into the small storage capacities of the handheld devices. These mini-browsers only allow access to limited information and are normally not efficient for huge Internet applications.

The Internet services are normally provided by the local Internet service providers depending on the country where one comes from. These Internet service providers are normally responsible for monitoring, maintaining, and repairing the Internet connections of their clients, and they do all this at a fee normally charged at the end of the month. WAP services are provided and supported by the companies that support the operation of handheld devices, for example, the mobile service providers, and they also charge a fee for their services.

For Internet connection, you have to adjust the Internet connection settings of your computer each time you move to a new connection point. This is because different service providers and different organizations have different Internet settings, for example, the Internet protocol addresses.
