At what rate is the internet growing right now?

Asked by TheBox193 (992points) February 1st, 2009

I just saw a video clip that was from early/mid 90’s that said the internet was growing at a 10% rate. They described it as growing like an embryonic brain. Anyone know any facts or sites that talk about the grow of th internet?

“Originally, Moore’s Law described the number of transistors that can fit on an integrated circuit, which doubles approximately every 18 months. Now, a team of researchers from China has discovered that Moore’s Law can also describe the growth of the Internet. In a recent study, the researchers have predicted that the Internet will double in size every 5.32 years.”
