BtN “How does the internet work?”


Red is Facts.

Blue is Insights.

Green is a question.

Black is a summary.

This BtN was explaining how the internet works and how its accessed by many countries. The internet is made of cables and these cables are about as thick as a can of soft drink. They’re either buried in shallow areas of the ocean or are under water up to 8-thousand metres deep. The wires carry fibre optic cables that allow internet data to travel from one place to another. The person who helped the internet become how it is today was Tim Berners-Lee. In 1989, he created a system used for sharing information on the internet which he named the World Wide Web. Today, around 3.2 billion people around the world use the internet. An insight I had was that the internet is made of lots of cables that connect countries to the sever. Two questions I have are in the past have sea creatures ever broken the internet cables before? And how do the fibre optic cables transport so much information?
