The Ether is a virtual reality world in gen:LOCK that is widely used within the Polity. It appears to be the direct successor to our time's Internet.

The Ether is a popular method for recreation, where individuals can socialize and partake in activities such as gaming, clubbing and attending musical concerts. It is not free to use and requires an Ether bill.

The Ether can be accessed by wearing a visor and logging-in as a customizable avatar.

The Ether functions using a network of distribution nodes, with the Dallas Data Center being one of the main nodes. The Union attacks it in "Training Daze" in effort to disable it.
