Most experience the Internet through the screens of computers, phones, and tablets. But we rarely wonder what the internet looks like and how such a large amount of data travels to us. If you imagine the physical Internet in the form of large buildings filled with cables and servers, with strict insurance, then you are not far from reality.
The Internet is actually located in a large numbers of buildings – “carrier hotels”.,There operators’ networks are connected to one larger network – that is, the Internet. This process enables hundreds of miles of cables to be connected to seemingly endless rows of servers.
Peter Garritano, a Brooklyn photographer, visited five hubs ( carrier hotels ) in New York. He wanted to bring the masses closer to the Internet in physical space. Access to these hotels is not easy. At every corner there are guards, security checkpoints with biometric devices, and even hidden traps. See below how the Internet looks in the real world.
