Internetworking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (420 words)
It is interesting to note that some people inaccurately refer to the connecting together of networks with bridges as internetworking, but the resulting system mimics a single subnetwork, and no internetworking protocol (such as IP) is required to traverse it.
Internetworking started as a way to connect disparate types of networking technology, but it became widespread through the developing need to connect two or more local area networks via some sort of wide area network.
The most notable example of internetworking in practice is the Internet, a network of networks running different low-level protocols, unified by an internetworking protocol, the Internet Protocol (IP).
Broadband Internet access - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3104 words)
Broadband Internet access became a rapidly developing market in many areas in the early 2000s; one study found that broadband Internet usage in the United States grew from 6% in June 2000 to over 30% in 2003.
Satellite Internet is usually among the most expensive ways of gaining broadband Internet access, but in rural areas it is often the only viable option.
Satellite internet also has a high latency problem caused by the signal having to travel 35,000 km (22,000 miles) out into space to the satellite and back to Earth again.
