1969 – The first-ever computer-to-computer link is established.
The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was the first wide-area packet-switching network with distributed control and one of the first networks to implement the TCP/IP protocol suiteused on by the Internet today.
The first computers were connected on the 29th October 1969 and the Network Control Program was implemented in 1970.
Further software development enabled remote login, file transfer and email. The network expanded rapidly and was declared operational in 1975 when control was passed to the Defense Communications Agency.
Both technologies became the technical foundation of the Internet.
Extra Note: The ARPANET was established by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the United States Department of Defense.
