The phenomenal growth of Internet

Do you know what was the global internet traffic in 1992.

100 GB per day.

It was like 10 households watching Netflix together for 10 hours a day.

How has the Global Internet Traffic grown?

This moved to 100GB per hour by 1997.

And then the Internet Traffic moved to 100 GB per second by 2002!

By 2020, we were talking about 100,000 GB per day, and this was equivalent to 325 million households binge watching Netflix all the time.

In 2022, we are talking about 150,000 GB per second.

Look at the scale of growth

Is there any other technology that has had such widespread impact on humanity in such a short period of time. Internet would probably come close to the invention of wheel, or fire.
