What does over mean in "over the internet". For example: the data can be accessed over the internet. Two computers are connected over the internet.

The same as 'on the internet' or 'via the internet'. Sometimes people (older- like myself!) still think of the internet as wires connecting places, and those wires usually were above, or over the road. So you would send a telegram 'over the wires' and rthat sense has been retained in 'over the internet' DUane.
