The Internet is based on many technologies developed for ARPANET in the 1960s and 1970s. The first ARPANET link was established between a computer at UCLA and another one at the Stanford Research Institute on October 29, 1969. By the end of 1971, there were fifteen computers on the network.
The internet was invented in the 1990-99 decade. Before the invention of the internet telegraph, telephone radio and postal mail were modes of communication.
The first applications of nodes connected as a (ring) network over long distance by phone lines were realized between the 1st of September 1969 and the 1st of October 1969.
Arpanet (Advanced Research Projects Agency) was realized by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and SRI (Stanford Research Institute). Although DARPA's work is classified in this case the concept of resource sharing made the Internet possible.
Other sources report the first connection was between DARPA and UCLA (Universityof California, Los Angeles). The node at SRI (Stanford Research Institute) would have -logically- been connected as well. The SRI node provided management and logging capabilities which made it imperative.

Development of internet started in 1957 when Sputnik I (the first satellite) was launched by Soviet Union. American’s felt threat by this and thought that the Soviet Union could also do bomb attacks from the space. So they created Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) in 1958. It worked for the safety from space based missile attack. Then they made another satellite which was the first satellite of U.S.
