Al vs A. Passive statements

At " Con la nueva red 5G, podrán acceder a Internet", why is it 'a Internet' and not 'al Internet'?


Also, how do i know when and where to use a passive se sentence Instead of a regular simple future tense as seen here: "los coches automáticos se controlarán" ? I was going to say 'los coches automáticos controlarán' without the se.

Hola Kevaughn

The word internet is generally used with no article; this is why you see here "a internet", not "al" or "a la". However, it's good to know that if you want to use the article, both masculine and feminine can be used: el / la 

As for the passive se, here's a lesson on this that will be helpful and will hopefully clarify your doubt: 

passive se
