How does the internet work?
« on: October 09, 2018, 08:11:41 AM »
Hi, I searched the FE forum a little bit but couldn't find an answer. So the internet is basically that we have cables connecting our home routers to a bigger local router which then sends the signal up to a satellite in space. This sattelite then redirects the information through other satellites and then back to earth to the main server of the website. But if the earth is flat and mankind has never been to space, then satellites would be an impossibility and the whole internet network would crash. It would be way too inefficient to run the internet on the ground as although it would be generally flat, there are still hills and mountains that disrupt the connection. Being able to send a precise signal over long distances taking the terrain over the whole earth into consideration would just be insane. So how come I can write on this thread right now presumably from the other side of earth with no problem? How does it work, and how do they cover up such a big technology? Phones work the same way as well, which is why signal is sometimes lost if there isn't any mobile operations transmitters nearby.

Most internet traffic goes through fiber in the ground, not through space.
Let me explain this in a way you can understand. What you just wrote sounds exactly like something that a gay rights Portuguese Samurai would write.

Do those cables follow round earth shortest paths?
How do they accommodate deepsea trenches and mountains?

Probably.

IDK, I would assume they map the intended path so as to go around or travese such obstacles.

The internet has nothing to do with outer space.

My Internet services comes in on fiber optic along with my regular telepone service. (Frontier)

All are land network system. Otherwise how can you explain why smart phones do not work in deserted areas?

Wait, another problem. You never move your dish but satellites really are stabil to hold your signal to true direction?

There is internet on Sat TV's. So you are believing that you type something on your pc, in a few ms'nds your request go google and turns you back, and does it a travel between your home and a satellite that far you see it from your home. Don't you realize that the internet is working when the weather is rainy? Because all system are underground.
I have answer good or bad for all questions.Just first look at the question, is it a real question; then I look at the questioner, is it a real human.



Now you do have :)

Internet is a bad example as pointed out. However, its a valid question for gps, radio, television, satellite phones,  etcetera etcetera

Yes.  This is true.  When I worked for Cisco I actually worked with a man that laid the first fiber lines across the atlantic ocean back in the early 90s.  Basically the lines run from the US to Europe and then from Europe to the rest of the world.

Internet uses optic fibers because if you use satellits (36 000 km over the earth) the ping is too long : minimum (36 000 + 36 000) / 300 000 = 0,24 s if the satellite is over your head. 240 ms. Too poor. New york / Paris with fiber : 6 000 / 300 000 = 0,02 s. 20 ms. Better.

My theory for this is that, because the earth has a dome over it, it's much easier to reflect signals off of it. Therefore, a radio tower somewhere else on the earth could be positioned as to reflect its signals off the dome and appear as if it was a satellite. This is one of NASA's primary objectives—to hide the dome from us. They supposedly launched satellites that we are supposed to believe exist in place of the dome.

Having a large radio reflector over our heads allows services like "satellite" phones, radio, and GPS to work as they do.

The internet works with satellites like you have always heard. The Earth is round and there is absolutely nothing to prove that it is flat. There are some fiber optic cables running underground, but the internet works primarily with satellites in space. And yes, we have been to the moon.

That's just not true. It's primarily through fiber, not satellite.

It is interesting to note this is actually a proof of a flat earth. The lengths of the transatlantic cables have been shown in the past to not match up with round earth distances.

I can't find the citation for my above claim; I'll check my sources at some point, or will find this thread when I reread the original.

That said, the earlier claim that all internet traffic goes through satellites (this is patently stupid) can be debunked by round earth sources: https://www.newsweek.com/undersea-cables-transport-99-percent-international-communications-319072

Here we go, it was Carpenter:
The surveyor's plans for the first Atlantic Telegraph cable show that in 1665 miles - from Valentia Ireland to St. John's Newfoundland - the surface of the Atlantic ocean is a level surface.

Likely from his 100 proofs earth not a globe. For more evidences look here:
https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=67919.0

Wardlaw and Rowbotham also bring this up.

As expected considering the traffic flows.

You don't find it at all curious that with the exception of a small connection between Oz-NZ, all the EW traffic is routed through the northern hemiplane. Quite a coincidence.

I don't find that curious at all. Looking at the map, the connections seem to be between developed economies, broadly in proportion to their size. I might have expected more direct connections between South America and Europe, but other than that very little surprises. What would you have expected to be different?
