Someone told me everyone downloads when they're connected to the Internet, is that true?

Yes, every web page and every email you see on your computer is "downloaded" from the Internet. The Internet is actually a network that transfers data between computers. That data is what makes up web pages, text, email, audio and video that you receive and see on your computer. So every user of every ISP "downloads" data while they are using the Internet.
