In today’s modern, developed world it is almost impossible to imagine our life’s without the Internet. As a person who was born to it, I have never actually thought about its history and it’s a shame because now it is the main platform for almost everything whether it is for communication, education or entertainment.
What really fascinates me about the history of the Internet is how from a room size computer we are now able to access the data in the hands of our fingertips. It is known to us as 3G which is described as development and evolution of the GSM, which was conceived in the early 80’s. It was an essential that 13 countries would corporate and share their knowledge before the network went live in 1991 for the very first time.
Comparing to the development of the internet now, the 1G and 2G network was being slow and there was many issues with excess traffic handling ability, lack of network security and cost of deployment.
3G runs on completely different set of frequencies and this is when we could see mobile internet reach its full potential. With previous network it was something incredible to just send a text or a picture, however 3G took it to a new level and made it possible to have a conversation with someone on the other side of the world and be able to see them.
It’s so difficult to imagine how the internet will develop even more in the future as there is so much to it already or maybe it has already reached its full potential?
