The concept of the internet started over 50 years ago when computers filled the entire room, today it is an ubiquitous information infrastructure, the initial prototype of what J. C. R. Licklider called the inter-galactic computer network Its history is complex and involves many aspects – technological, organizational, and community; its influence reaches not only to the technical field of computer communications but throughout society. Categorizing internet into different generations seeks to give us a microscopic view of what the internet was, what its now and its future. The internet generation is divided into four (4) guided by its usage, number of users, technology, protocols device used and transmission technology.
