||Internet access and its beginnings can be accredited in large part to the collective efforts of many individuals around the
globe. However, it all began back in the late 60s when the U.S.
military wanted to create a network of computers that could
communicate together. This network was to become known as
ARPANET. By the mid 1980s, the National Science Foundation
improved the networks ability to transfer information at faster
speeds. As a result, and by the 90s, Internet service providers
(ISP's) and Web sites began popping-up offering Internet access
to the public, thereby, ushering in the age of Internet access.
