This is The Internet. It is wireless and can normally be found at the top of Big Ben in London, where it gets the best reception.
Whether you are looking for novelty for your desk, somewhere to hide your secrets or a subject for a speech to the shareholders, The Internet is a unique and fun tribute to this hilarious joke from The IT Crowd.
It measures 7.6 x 4.4 x 2.2". Includes a red flashing light on top powered by a single cell (included) on a custom made circuit board. Includes an internal switch so you can TURN OFF THE INTERNET.

Looks great! Shipping was super fast! Thank you! It's for my wife... she loves the IT Crowd. I think she'll love it! Overall, it's a wonderful representation of the original. I have a couple of minor criticisms that could make it a lot better though. For one, the switch to turn on/off the LED is behind 6 screws. So either don't screw it in, or don't turn the light on. (unless you really like screwing/unscrewing things) Secondly, the description mentioned possibly using it to store something... so I was thinking she might be able to store jewelry or soaps or something in it. While that's possible, it's not very practical... as it's also behind 6 screws. Considering how pricey it is, a design that could be opened/closed easier and had the light switch on the bottom would make it infinitely more useful. (and more marketable!)
Perfect! If you are looking for the "Internet" from the IT Crowd, look no further. It arrived in perfect condition and exactly what we were looking for! Speaking from an IT professional I can attest that once once I put the battery in the Internet, I got higher speeds on my internet than ever before. On top of my speeds doubling, my neighbor noticed higher speeds as well! So I strongly recommend doing a service to the area that you live in and picking one of these up!
Awesome. Cool item and exactly as described. I was impressed with the build and it functions well as a shelf prop. The item arrived with screws to secure the bottom cover. There was a cute card in the box referencing an "IT Crowd" tv quote. If I need another one, I would definitely buy it again from this shop. Item uses one "CR2032" 3 volt lithium battery.
Exceptional. I sent a message asking how long the batteries last when it arrived, and received a response in only a couple of hours! Answer (I'm paraphrasing here): Quality batteries can reach up to two months, cheap might last a month or more. Screws are only needed if you are carrying/moving The Internet around a lot. (Which, let's be honest, doesn't sound safe. What if you drop it?!) Anyways, awesome prop, blinking light is great, and it doesn't devoir batteries. Perfect. Seller was super responsive and helpful. Max stars all around!
