How does the Internet reach our homes?

Every day each of us, for different reasons and needs, uses the Internet to connect with people and places, which are not always very near to us.


Have you ever wondered how all this is possible? How does our ADSL modem really work? How do we get the Internet at our homes?

Thanks to the Network, which connects our homes using a physical set of wires to transmit the signal via which we receive data, sound and Internet.

If it were not for the network, we would not have the Internet!
 

A CITY OF CABLES

Not everyone is aware that a cable physically brings the network into our homes. It is this cable that makes a series of routes underground or over our heads, when the central part where the signal originates is huge, and only when it comes to the cabinet (or cabinet) which is located close to dwellings is divided into pairs of wires smaller: it starts from a cable that holds up to 2400 pairs, until you get to smaller cables that reach your homes or your office with a single pair .

Do you think that the territory is covered by several central Italy Telecom that provide the network to all homes: usually the distance from the center is about 1.5 km, and the houses can be achieved even a thousand!

GOOD NEWS
