In here to discuss what is happening on the internet per minute in 2019.
The internet is everywhere. No, I don’t mean it hypothetically, it actually is! If you don’t believe me, then according to statistics almost 26.66 billion devices were active on the internet in 2019. Told you internet is everywhere and you might not even believe me if I tell you that you can get high-speed internet connection on Mount Everest.! Also in all these years, we have produced around 30+ zettabytes of data, yeah, so that would be around 3 billion of 12TB HDDs. Yeah, I know all these facts are brutal.
Stick till the end of the blog to know something interesting like a secret.
If I would ask you what are the things you can do within one minute, surely there will be many things but nothing much significant. Let’s face it we can’t even take a good selfie in a minute! All puns intended!. Well, there is this giant whose weight is claimed to be equivalent to that of a strawberry that can do A LOT, I mean really A LOT in a minute i.e just 60 seconds. Yes, we call it “The Internet”. A place where most of us spend more than a quarter of our life on the internet.
We have all heard of the quote “Data never sleeps”. But what does it mean? That when you sleep peacefully there’s someone up all night who keep collecting data so you can spend your life scrolling and surfing. But how hard do the internet works? The Internet Requires Approximately 90 Billion Horsepower each year in Electricity. I can only imagine. So what does the internet do in a minute? It’s much more huge than you think.
