The Internet's roots date back to the 1950s, when researchers realized there was a need to allow general communications between users of various computers and communications networks (History of the Internet, Wikipedia). However, it wasn't until 1986 and the National Science Foundation's (NSF) construction of a university network called NSFNet that the Internet truly began to take off. In the 1990s the Internet, as a shared network, began to gain in popularity.
