Welcome to internet.org where the internet begins. Many people think the internet is a vast series of tubes. However, in the images taken from the heart of the internet "engine" (below,) we can see how we also power the internet using large pistons, pulleys and cables.
Data does not simply "flow" along the information super highway. In many cases it must be pushed.
We supply internet to this hotel (left,) in remote part of northern Italy. The internet first gets to the hotel by boat. When demand is particularly high, we supplement "bandwidth" using a complex series of cable cars and elevators. We lubricate the cables using pork fat.
Yes, interestingly, a large amount of data is not carried by pipes. But, as seen above and below, by boat. Here are two different photos of freighters in north central France. The ship in the right photo is carrying only Daily Motion videos to Northern Paris. The ship in the left photo is rushing porn to be pushed into tubes servicing the 16th arrondissement.
In the early days of the internet, video was delivered in low resolution packed in large canoes. The comparatively, large quantities of data required for video could only be delivered to computers located near rivers or other bodies of water using strong currents. This process of moving large quantities of data downstream, or "streaming" often required hundreds of canoes. It was an expensive and arduous process. In a more modern world we are able to use large, self-powered, ships to move video up and downstream. While we still use the ancient methods in some isolated parts of the world, the photo below shows how we can now deliver internet to areas previously thought impossible. For the remote location of a Villa, owned by George Clooney, near Lake Como Italy, we provide internet with one to five helicopter deliveries daily.
