Wireless internet is an unseen wonder of our modern world – but how does it work in practice?

There’s a famous quote by Arthur C. Clarke: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”. For many people around the world, wireless internet is one of these technologies.

It seems to be all around us and has had an enormous impact on our world, yet few people can say with confidence that they know where it comes from, how it gets around, and what’s happening inside those little boxes with the blinking lights that we keep inside our homes.

Wireless internet has allowed rural populations around the world to become part of the global community online, providing equal access to education, work opportunities, and entertainment like never before.

In New Zealand, wireless internet technology has allowed remote businesses, schools, and communities to connect with the outside world, removing the barriers that previously kept them isolated. It’s also increasingly being used in urban centres.

So how does this magical, life-changing technology work? Read on to discover (in everyday language) what you need to know about wireless internet.
