In 1994, TheSound.com became one of the first websites in the world to offer streaming of radio stations, music, and live events, including the world’s first live Internet concert by a major band, The Rolling Stones.
The concert was broadcast on the multicast backbone (MBONE), which connected the Internet service providers (ISPs) at the video transmission speed of 128 kb/sec.
About 100 ISPs enjoyed the world’s first live Internet concert, which made international news.
That feat was considered miraculous at that time because most Internet use was over a dial-up modem with extremely limited bandwidth of 56 kb/sec. A slow connection today is 200 times this speed.
This website is the brainchild of a visionary philanthropist and a hard-working web development team.
TheSound.com is leading a global community that promotes the sharing and streaming of music for a good cause.
