What will happen if the Internet shutdown for 1 minute?


As we know what is internet and what is its use. Internet is a network of all computers that are connected to each other whether it is in the form of broadband, WiFi.

Internet is widely used by every country on this planet whether it is China or India. Internet is mainly used by every user whether it is for entertainment, to earn money, for business or for any other purpose.

Basically internet is like a web which are interconnected. Perhaps, some of you would have a question that if the internet is like a web then who is the owner of the internet?

Who owns the Internet?

Well, there is no such organization that owns the Internet, but there is an organization that manages the Internet by the name of ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).

ICANN is a non-profit organization working to make the Internet more reliable and useful.

Due to Reliance Jio and Digital India program in India, Indian population is connected to the Internet very fast. Which is a good thing.

In such a situation, what if the internet is turned off for 1 minute?

What do you think won’t make much difference. But you are thinking wrong.

Often I get scolded at home by my parents when I look at my phone, laptop, internet all day.

Mother is the most upset and says, “Why don’t you enter the phone. Don’t know what will happen if you turn off the internet for 1 minute.
