  1. A Brief History of the  Internet  There was a time when the internet was a fascinating concept.                       Literally, it meant interconnected network and that was all. Before                     the possibilities of the interconnected network were explored and                   eventually expanded, you got one cable: the Ethernet cable that                     plugged into your massive desktop computer. And to do so, you                       had to unplug all other communication to your house.        Fortunately, things changed, computers got smaller and portable                 and so did the internet.     Let’s get a deeper insight into the history of the                     internet and how our way of living has changed                   because of it:  1​​

  2. Dial up connection:    The beginning of the internet was complicated. If you had a                       landline connection in your house, you had to use the same cable                         to plug into your computer to get on the internet. The caveats                         were plenty: disconnection in the landline and therefore defunct;                   expensive internet data, not to mention the whole thing was slow!    However, what this internet brought was a completely different                   way of communication. Online communities were born and it gave                     rise to the internet culture.    Eventually, the internet sophisticated and this gave rise to newer                     technology. As the demand for better connectivity grew, Ethernet                   cables began evolving. Its comprised materials also changed.  Modem-router connection:  Once the internet established a place in houses, the attempt was                       to make it simpler, better and more accessible to as many people                         as possible.  2​

  3.   This change came alongside the miniaturization of computers.                 They became more portable in the form of laptops which became                       more accessible by the general public. People started knowing how                     to plug in an Ethernet cable to get on the internet.    This meant that people also started putting things on the internet                       like music, movies, books, information of all kinds, etc. This                     brought a disruption in not only the technology but also in a                         variety of other industries.    Doing homework for kids was easier, communicating with                 someone across the globe was far cheaper and seamless than                     before. Most of all, this was not limited to offices and didn’t require                           a deep understanding of technology. It was for the average                     consumer.    WIFI:    The next shift came with the invention of the Wireless network.                       Once laptops became popular, it was unpopular to sit in a place                         3​

  4. just to use it. Wi-Fi made moving around with a laptop, while still                           using the internet, possible. You still had to connect your modem                       or router to the internet line in the house via an Ethernet cable,                           but at least you were free to move around.    Since anything wired has better connectivity than wireless, this                   required improvements to the cables in use. The wiring in the                       houses had to be with better, newer Ethernet cables, like the cat4,                         cat5, cat5e cable, and ​cat 6a cable​. The latest one was enough for all industries to leverage the internet.                              Now that the basics are covered and we are moving towards                       constant connectivity, streaming high-resolution movies and             games, and cloud architecture, the demands of the average user’s                     internet have shifted again.    The wiring in the houses needs to be with ​cat 7 cable or cat 8 ethernet cable, and you also need to use that on your routers and                                                         modems. Even if your house doesn’t need this advanced speed, if                       you are rewiring the house, it is better to future proof it.     4​

  5. Mesh WIFI:     The next best thing to happen to consumer accessible internet,                     since Wi-Fi was mesh network Wi-Fi. Its main use is to eliminate                         Wi-Fi dead zones that can happen in a house. The bigger your                         house, the more difficult it is to get decent Wi-Fi coverage in all                           parts of it.    With the mesh Wi-Fi system connected to a cat 7 cable or a ​cat 8 ethernet cable​, you can experience seamless internet connectivity                                               in all areas of your house. Not only that, but your device will also                             be handed off from one node or zone to another as you move                           through the house.    If you use the internet only on your phones and laptops, you can                           make do with ​cat5e cable and cat 6a cable, but if you want to turn your home into a smart home that has multiple IoT devices that                                                       need to run on fast internet, you should splurge for the more                         expensive, top tire Ethernet cables.    5​

  6. Last Words  The coming enhancement of the internet is 5G connectivity. It                     promises   almost   no   lag   and   negligible   ping   time   in   the   cloud-computing era that we currently live in. But it is still a                         couple of years out. So, if you want to get the best internet                           experience right now, you can do so by upgrading your cables, and                         devices.  When it comes to consumer technology there is always a balance                       you need to find: use what’s most comfortable for you while also                         making sure that the device you are buying is future proof for at                           least more than a couple of years.  5G connectivity will change the internet and once again, the way                       we use it. For the foreseeable future, Ethernet cables are here to                         stay and therefore we’ve stocked them at SF Cable. Browse from                       our wide selection, and contact us if you need more information                       about which cable is right for your use.  This Blog is Originally posted here:  https://www.sfcable.com/blog/brief-history-internet/  6​
