In my opinion nuclear weapons wouldn't be used in WW3 for a while. I think the various super powers of the world would attempt to use it's Army, Air
Force and Navy before resorting to a desperate nuclear strike which would be the end of whoever launches. I feel it is safe to assume the war would be
a long, drawn out war with massive losses (millions, perhaps billions) before even the first tactical nuke is used.
As far as the Internet goes, the Internet is not something that can be destroyed. The Internet is a mass of different computers and components
connected to one another and communicating back and forth. No one government can stop people from logging on and sending information, atleast not
without either destroying the world. There will always be the ability for at very least a small number individuals communicating through the lines.
The Internet will be a vital tool and will save a great deal of people. Those who use it each day will recieve advanced warning of the events to come.
The news (if not your nations news, the news of a foreign nation) will tell the stories of the events to come, what it happening and we willl be able
to prepare. Even if that isn't the case, average people will see troops landing on the shores or bombing from the skies and will jump online and
spread the word.
In the event that WW3 did occur in our lifetimes, the Internet would proove its worth, that's for sure.
