Invention Of the Internet

The Internet was born in the year 1990 when the ARPANet officially split into two separate networks to further facilitate usage and prevent military secrets from being tapped into easily. They were the Milnet (for military use) and the NSFNet (for commercial use). The NSFNet was named after the National Science Foundation which was in charge of the Internet backbone. The backbone speed was upgraded again to 
44.736Mbps (T-3 speed) and by 1992, there were as many as 1 million Internet users.

Today, there are about 605.60 million Internet users in the world.
