When was the internet started?

The internet was created in 1983. The idea behind the internet came from the US Defence department who had a basic version of the internet set up as a secure system for their information.

The internet was born from a mainly academic origin, as a framework connecting numerous computer networks together. It has rapidly developed into a very popular commercial medium. By the mid-1990s, millions of computers all around the world were connected on the ‘world wide web’.

The limits of technology are always changing, and the internet tests the capabilities of modern developments to the full.
