What if I say - at the end we all connected with Cables...

Yes, the network you are connected maybe wireless but whom you pay for your network is also connected with someone called INTERNET BACKBONE... strange?

All the wires are underground in the Ocean.

Why don't you visit on your own to see how internet is connected?

Really cool, I see that there are even cables running all the way to tiny island groups in the middle of the Pacific. And a lot of the cables seem to go around the coasts of the continents, I guess that in many cases running these cables over the ocean floor is a lot cheaper/easier than over land (no problem with land owners etc).
