    They have the Internet at their disposal

    Hi there,

    "They have the Internet at their disposal" What does this sentence mean? Can you please elaborate this to me? I looked up in the dictionary but I couldn't take the exact meaning in.

    Thanks.

    I guess you know what the internet is, so you're asking about 'at their disposal'.

    It means they are able to use it.


    • the power or opportunity to make use of someone or something (esp in the phrase at one's disposal)

    They can use it if they want to- it's there for them to access.
