How is data transferred via the internet across oceans?
I just read an article about how the internet speed record was just broken using fiber-optics. The transfer rate was about 9.8 MB’s per sec.
The data was being downloaded (I believe) from Amsterdam to illinois (not 100% sure, I could be wrong about the locations).
Anyway, there must be a spot somewhere in the continental US where data no longer moves through a physical pipe, right? Unless, of course, there is a big interent pipe from New York, through the ocean and over to Europe (LOL)??
Anyone have a little Internet 101 on how data gets across the ocean and where the last stop is on the east and west coasts before it heads over-seas?
