Although this question itself is not very valid (at the end of the article you will understand why I am saying this), still many people ask this question on social media or inbox me. I understand the meaning of your question, brother, such a question used to bother me ten years ago. I thought the Internet was coming from a certain source, and it’s a strange thing!
But actually, this concept is much easier! Believe me, I don’t need to spend thousands of words explaining this like other articles. But apart from the main point of the article, I will also discuss some bonus points, so let’s start…
Where is the source of the Internet?
The answer is quite simple, and the whole thing is not so simple. See, to be honest, there is no specific source on the internet. Thinking, how about this again, right? — In an earlier article I discussed why the Internet cannot be destroyed. I explained in a unique way, how the entire Internet system is actually formed!
You can go and read the previous article as there is a lot of interesting information there too but for the sake of this article, I am mentioning it again.
Suppose you have 3-4 devices in your home that are connected to each other using a local network. This means that you can exchange any data or file from one device to another through its local network.
Now suppose your neighbor friend connects to this local network of yours and wants to download some files or exchange some data from your computer. Again you also want to share a file from a friend’s computer in the same way. So what to do?
So now you need to connect your local network and your friend’s local network together via wireless, right? In this way, as many of your friends want to share files with each other, all have to be connected to the local network by cable or wireless, right?
Now think of this same thing over your entire neighborhood, then over your entire police station, gradually over your division level, then over your entire country with one such network connected to another network. Here everyone is connected to everyone’s local network to form a huge network, where everyone’s devices are connected together. So what do you understand? Yes, this is the Internet, it is your country’s own Internet! In this way, different countries of the world share their network with different countries. And as a result, the real global Internet system is created!
So this thing has no authority or anyone controlling anything, nor does it have any specific source! You are using the Internet, which means you are also a source of the Internet. Now by installing web server software on your PC, you can provide content to the world. There is no one called the father of the Internet, if he takes his hands off his head, the Internet will disappear overnight!
So understand, you are a source! Many of those reading this article are probably using torrents. Be aware that many files can be downloaded directly from your PC by other users via torrent. So here you are a source, clear?
Where does internet data originate?
Now many people ask me, we are spending the data packs that we are constantly buying, so where does this data come from, and where does the data get consumed?
The bottom line is, that you don’t consume any data on the internet, and the data is not generated anywhere. It’s not at all what it looks like in general, so you say, what is the remaining data balance that is shown when you dial a certain code from the phone?
The amount of data displayed in your SIM data account is just a limit, that is, how much bandwidth you can consume in total. Your phone has a data balance of 1 GB, it means that you have not been charged 1 GB from somewhere, just that you can transfer 1 GB of data.
The Internet is a collection of huge computers, I explained the matter above, to know more — What is the Internet? How does it work? – Suppose you have 3 phones, 2 laptops, and 1 PC connected to the router at home, do you know that you have created a small personal internet by connecting these devices together? Although it is not called direct internet but a local area network. In fact, there is no difference between this local area network and the Internet, the basics are all the same!
You must use Shareit to share data/songs/pictures from one phone to another, right? Did you know, this is how the internet works? So where is this data coming from? In fact, these are files stored on another computer that you want on your device. And the internet just works to transfer these files from the server to your device!
Now those who have given you an internet connection take some money from you to pass this data, they don’t have this data, they just set the limit on how much data you can transfer. It can be any file, just move it from a server to your phone or any computer and it will be accounted for.
So now you understand clearly, the source of the Internet
