Is that how people usually say ‘internet’ in Welsh?

Well, "Gwe" is the name for a "Web" in both the sense of "the world wide web" and a "spiders web", the best translation for "Internet" is "Rhyngrwyd" which is leterally "Between/Intern-net".

This word is a zombie - deleted from the course datbase but still appearing due to a Duolingo system bug.

The word should be gwe, the unmutated form, and as EllisV says, it means 'web', not 'internet' - which is why it shouldn't still be in the course.
