  • Well here's another googling answer now which is right?
    The internet has been around for forty years to date. It began in November 1969. The ARPnet shifted and started using TCI/IP protocol which in modern terms is the internet.

  • The internet in terms of anyone and everyone being able to access it and use it? or The internet in terms of when it actually began being used by the government?

  • I used to use something called electronic bulletin boards, with a [gasp] dial up modem in 1990's, that was a version of the internet I suppose!
