Vinton G. Cerf "Father of the Internet"

Backbone:50Kbps ARPANET, Hosts:62

In 1974, the term "Internet" was first used by Vinton Cerf and Bob Kahn in a paper on Transmission Control Protocol. Commercial interests hit in 1974 when BBN developed a commercial version of ARPANET called Telenet. It was the first commercially available packet-switching network and was widely used by early online services like Compuserve and GEnie.
