How Much Does The Internet Cost?

November 26, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Gadgetose took a look at what it costs to run the entire internet:

  • It takes 1.5% of the world’s electricity supply to keep the internet running.
  • This is equivalent to the annual output of 30 nuclear power plants.
  • This would mean an energy bill of $8.5 billion – equivalent to Google’s profits in 2011.
