What Is Internet??

  The first thing you will need to know about what is Internet is what an Internet Service Provider (ISP) does for you. What they do is they put up a network of broadband connections that allow their customers to connect to their Internet service, and they will charge a monthly fee for this connection. Internet is simply a worldwide network of interconnected computer networks using the Internet Protocol (IP), which translates one computer's request to a number of others. Every computer on the Internet is uniquely identified by an IP address. A special type of computer called a Domain Name System (DNS) is responsible for giving a unique name to each IP address so that you can find a particular computer just by a given name. Every time you make a request on the Internet, the first computer receives the request and translates it into an IP address. The next time you make a request on the Internet, the second computer receives the request and converts it into an IP address. When requ

What is the Dark Web?

You’re reading this article.. Then you head to Amazon to buy your Grandma’s birthday present This internet browsing is taking place on a layer of the internet called the Surface Web. But beneath it are many more layers of the internet, in what’s known as the Deep Web . At the top of these layers are websites that can be accessed, but can’t be found by doing a search on Google or Bing.  Think online banking and government databases, pages that are password encrypted. But what if you keep going down, all the way to the bottom of the Deep Web? Well, here you’ll find the Dark Web. Here, users communicate through encrypted messages and can buy or sell anything with total anonymity. It’s been called the ‘wild west’ of the internet because operating here in the shadows are extremists, criminals and trolls. So, where did the Dark Web come from and how does it work? Well firstly the Dark Web is not a place but a term that describes parts of the internet that hide your identity and location.  Th

What is 5G?

  Mobile network that's used around the world to make calls, send messages and surf the web. Now there are plans for 4G to be replaced by, you guessed it, 5G - a new, faster network that has the potential to transform the internet. 5G is a software defined network . it means that while it won’t replace cables entirely it could replace the need for them by largely operating on the cloud instead. This means it will have a 100x better capacity than 4G - which will dramatically improve internet speeds. For example, to download a two-hour film on 3G would take about 26 hours, on 4G you’d be waiting 6 minutes, and on 5G you’ll be ready to watch your film in just over three and a half seconds.  But it’s not just internet capacity that will be upgraded. Response times will also be much faster. The 4G network responds to our commands in just under 50 milliseconds. With 5G it will take around one millisecond - 400 times faster than a blink of the eye. Smartphone users will enjoy a more stre
