This is how Amazon secretly controls the Internet

This is how Amazon secretly controls the Internet Did you know that Amazon controls the daily traffic to the World Wide Web? The Netflix you watch, the BBC you read, the Disney Zoom app you use all depends on the technical infrastructure under the direct control of the world's richest man Jeff Bezos. Today we are going to tell you about it in detail. It all started in 2002 when Amazon Web Services (AWS) was first created as a department within Amazon. It was started under the leadership of Jeff Bezos in a small building with very little internal technical infrastructure. Jeff Bezos was known to the world only as a general online book retailer. But the following year, in 2003, two AWS engineers, Chris Pinkham and Benjamin Black, suggested that the Slick New Server service not only help their company grow stronger and faster but also sell it to other third-party companies. It opened up additional revenue for Amazon and generated revenue of $11.6 billion in the third quarter of 2020.
