    Prepositions over/through/via with the Internet

    What are the right and most usable prepositions in the sentence:
    You can check your bank account at any time over/through/via the Internet.

    Re: Prepositions over/through/via with the Internet

    All of them are acceptable for your sentence.

    I personally probably use 'over' more, but would not be surprised to hear others say differently.

    Re: Prepositions over/through/via with the Internet

    I'd use "on the internet/net" or just "online".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I note that since joining the forum almost three years ago, northpath has yet to click the Like/Thank buttons in acknowledgement or appreciation of any of the responses he/she has received.

    "Over" sounds best to me, too.

    Re: Prepositions over/through/via with the Internet

    OK, in your opinion
    You can check your bank account at any time on the Internet
    Is the best? Good!
    But are the prepositions 'over/through/via' acceptable?
