It began in 1970’s and 1980’s. The internet as we know it today began as the ARPANET mean advanced Research Projects agency networks connected to the Arpanet with TCP/IP. TCP- Transmission control protocol/IP- Internet Protocol was developed in 1974. The ARPANET was shut down in 1990 due to never network technology and the need for greater bandwidth on the backbone. In the late ‘70’s the NSFNET, national science foundation network was developed. This network relied on supercomputers in San Diego; boulder; Champaign; Pittsburgh; Ithaca; and Princeton. Each of these six supercomputers had a microcomputer tied to it which spoke TCP/IP.
Further development in networking lead to the design of the ANSNET – advanced network and services network. ANSNET was a joint effort by MCI, Merit, and IBM specifically for commercial purposes. The large network was sold to AOL in 1995. The national science foundation then awarded contracts to four major network access providers: pacific bell in San Francisco, Ameritech in Chicago, MFS in Washington DC and sprint in New York City. By the mid ‘80’s the collection of networks began to be known as the ‘’internet’ in university circles. TCP/IP remains the glue that holds it together.
