How does the internet work?

Does it travel over the air through radio waves or through underground tubes. Always wondered this, but can't find an answer on google.

Underground. Never seen workers put optical fiber in the ground?

There are tubes of fibre optic cables going along the sea floor.

Sometimes the cables get severed by the movement of the earth's crusts and there are ships that travel the ocean to repair the cables.

I saw that on a documentary. Can't remember what though.

Data can travel anywhere. The transmisions travel through fiber, twisted pair cables, coax cables, radio waves, IR... Data travels from you to large routers, switches, all kinds of different servers, DNS... to determine where it needs to go and how to get there. To understand what actually happens, read up on TCP/IP protocol stack.

The data that travel to another continent is allways optical ( light traveling in optics fiber ).

 

And you know how fast light goes :)

 

We will also replace electrons for photons in our computers. Graphene and other new wonder materials will enable us to do so.

Not quite, there's loads of copper cables still being used.

Illuminati!

Holy cow! How many times an I going to see this word. Do you even know what that word actually means or are you just copy other members that say it? Seriously, it's getting freaking ridiculous. I'm sorry, I'm not annoyed at you specifically but that word keeps popping up a heck of a lot on this forum like people think that's it's a humours thing to say. I'm quite sure you're a nice person, but please, come up with something new?

Rant over!

Basically, you are wired to a telephone exchange, if the exchange is large enough it travels from a radio antenna to the nearest server. Some smaller exchanges are daisy-chained to the nearest large exchange.

It's basically every computer in the world connected with each other in a huge worldwide network. It has so many levels of connectivity that in theory it should be impossible to completely destroy it in one fell swoop.

And contrary to popular belief, it is not a concept born from military pursuits.

Maybe so, but still, it's like when the word "epic" was overused and many times used incorrectly.
