Who actually owns the internet? And why do we have to pay to use it?


I'm asking this because in my journey of finding all things to be self sufficient, how exactly can you be self sufficient with access to the world wide web? Everyone has to pay for a connection one way or another. Don't they?

    Thanks for that. I've just been wondering lately like why do we pay to access it. And why can't we build our own servers?
