This chapter examines developments in the core structure of the Internet. Measurement of the Internet is challenging mainly due to the fact that, unlike most communication technologies, it relies on different actors and participants, and thus lacks a central control point. Nevertheless, data are available for some indicators from surveys and databases, which provide country‐level information on Internet infrastructure issues such as Internet hosts, domain name registrations, address space, security and network traffic, among others.
