Can You “Physically” Visit the Internet? [VIDEO]

Ever wonder where or how you can connect with people and information from all over the world through the internet?

After having his internet disconnect because of a squirrel, author Andrew Blum (Read Tubes on Kindle) gave a talk about a “physical” visit cyber-space.  Is it possible?

At IV Cellular, we provide a wireless connection to the internet through your phone.  However, there is still a “physical” connection to provide voice and internet that is piped in and out through fiber optics in the ground.  That’s why, if a fiber optic cable is severed…. It can affect multiple cellular phone companies (ie. recent (non IVC) cellular outage caused by a lawn mower in Northwestern Illinois.)
