Internet : How It All Began

What is Internet?

The Internet is a network of networks that connects computer networks and devices worldwide.

The Internet has revolutionized the way people communicate, share information, and conduct business. It is now the backbone of many industries, including publishing, advertising, entertainment and education.

The internet is an international network of computers that share resources and connect to each other using a protocol called TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol).

History of internet

The internet is a global network of computer networks that use the Internet protocol suite to link devices worldwide.

The history of the Internet can be traced back to the ARPANET, which was established in 1969 and was publicly used in 1982. The ARPANET was one of the first packet switching networks and had an estimated maximum transmission capacity of only 56 kbit/s.

The internet began as a military communication project before it became accessible to the general public. It was designed with a simple architecture that could be expanded rapidly without any central control or management structure.

How Does the Internet Work?

The internet is a global network of computers that communicate with each other. It is made up of millions of individual networks and websites, each connected to one another by a network of routers.

The internet works by transmitting data in packets. Packets are packages that contain the address of the destination computer and the data itself. When a packet arrives at its destination, it helps to reconstruct the original message from its parts.

The internet works by connecting people through a system of computers that are connected to one another across the world. These computers are called servers and they store information on hard drives.

When you send someone an email, it goes through the mail server and then is sent to their computer or phone (or in some cases, straight to their inbox).

How to Use Internet for Entertainment

The internet has created a new world of entertainment that is only limited by our imagination.

There are some ways you can use or experience entertainment on the internet:

  1. Watching TV shows and movies online.
  2. Playing video games online.
  3. Listening to music online.
  4. Reading books, magazines, and articles online.

Could We Survive Without an Internet?

The internet is a vital part of our lives and without it, it would be impossible to survive. It has changed the way we live and work, but what if this was the case?

The internet has grown more and more popular over time, but its impact on society is still unclear. There are many people who are not connected to the internet yet they are still alive. Some people can survive without being connected to the internet because they have alternative ways of living or working. The internet is different for every person, depending on their needs and wants.

What are the Internet Services?

The internet is a network of networks, each with its own unique services.

The following are some of the internet services that are used by people in their daily lives:

  1. Search engines and search result pages.
  2. Email providers and email delivery systems.
  3. Social media platforms and social media networks.

Disadvantages of the Internet

The advent of the Internet has brought about a lot of advantages and disadvantages. One of the main disadvantages is that people are spending more time on their computers and less time in real life.

The Internet has also brought about an increase in cyber crime and the effects it has on children. These two issues have been discussed extensively by a great number of scholars, psychologists, and sociologists.

Types of the Internet?

There are many types of the Internet.

  • The wired internet is accessible via a cable or wire that connects to your computer. It is also known as the traditional internet.
  • The wireless internet uses radio waves to connect to your computer and it is typically faster than the wired one. It also doesn’t require any wires or cables.
  • The mobile internet on the other hand, can be accessed through a device such as a smartphone or tablet that has an appropriate connection with networks like 3G or 4G LTE.
  • Broadband :This is a very high-speed internet with a transfer rate of 100Mbps. The internet speed depends upon the cables i.e. coaxial cable or fiber optics. Coaxial cables loss some data during transferring data.
  • DSL (Digital subscriber line) : DSL uses the modem for making an internet connection. It is 10 times faster than a dialup connection. Also, the voice quality of telephone is not affected when you use the internet at the same time.
  • ADSL (Asymmetric digital subscriber line : It is mostly used type of DSL and in this type of connection, download internet speed is high than upload internet speed. Mostly you use the internet for downloading data. And we upload files less.
