How does internet work?

The easiest way to understand how internet works is thinking about a road network, if you wants to go from one city to a distant one, you should prepare a route towards our target location. We likely make part of the trip by roads and part by highways. It's also likely we might need to switch to different roads/highways several times, those road switches use to be done on communication nodes (which sometimes match with cities)
