Who invented the internet? Short Answer

It’s difficult to credit the invention of the internet to just a single person – the web was, and still is, being continuously developed, improved and regulated, for example, by organisations such as the Internet Society.

The earliest prototype of something which resembles the modern internet was the ARPANET network developed by the US military. ARPANET delivered its first system to system message in 1969 – transmitting the word LOGIN.

In the 1970s, computer scientists Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf TCO/IP, a data transmission protocol that is still in use today and which was integrated into ARPANET in the early 1980s. From there, the technology was incrementally developed to enhance speed of data transmission and the number of systems possible within a network. Special mention to Tim Berners-Lee who is often credited with the invention of the world wide web as we know if today, having established the first website with the address info.cern.ch.
