The Impact
of Technology
on Society
Assignment 2 - Task One
Submitted by Deborah Ferreira - June 2021
Introduction
The introduction of the internet and the relentless pace in the development of technology
has truly changed our world.
We have said goodbye to outdated products like typewriters, audio cassettes, discmans
and black berries - and have welcomed smart devices, virtual reality, edge computing, 5G
and AI (artificial intelligence) into our lives.
These kinds of technology have changed the way we live our day to day lives, and with
the introduction of the internet, we now have the ability to be more connected than ever.
This kind of connection has affected the way we work, travel, communicate and play. The
internet has also allowed easy access to any kind of information at our fingertips 24/7.
So.. how exactly has all of this impacted our lives - and to what extent?
Let's take a look shall we?
What exactly is the internet?
In essence, the internet is a global
network that connects billions of
computers and electrical devices.
When connected to the internet, it
allows the user to access the World
Wide Web, which is a collection of
different websites.
The user then has the ability to
research and access a vast range
of information, in addition to well
as having the ability to
communicate with anyone else in
the world who is online.
Access to the Internet
It all started in 1960, where the internet
started out on big clunky computers as
a way for government researches to
share information. By the 1990’s it had
become a global commercial network.
Latest statistics tell us that as of
January 2021 (in just 61 years) there
were 4.66 billion active internet users
worldwide, which equates to 59.5% of
the entire global population.
However, not everyone has access to
the internet, mainly due to political
repression or connectivity issues.

Speed of the internet
Do you remember the old ‘dial up’ days? The
beeping and the waiting… and more waiting?
Well those days are gone - at least for most
us.
For fixed broadband speeds, current data
shows Singapore is leading the world with an
average connection speed of 245.50 MB/S.
As at April 2020, Australia’s broadband
internet speed ranks 56 out of 100 countries
on the global chart with an average speed of
77.88 MB/S.

selection of digital devices. A list of the
most popular devices are below:
● Mobile Phone
● Desktop Computer
● Tablet
● Smart TV
● Game console
● Smart Watches
