Internet Backbone - Definition

Internet Backbone refers to the super fast network spanning the world from one major metropolitan area to another that is provided by a handful of national Internet service providers (ISPs). These organizations use connections running at approximately 45 Mbps (T3 lines) linked up at specified interconnection points called national access points, which are located in major metropolitan areas. Local ISPs connect to this backbone through routers so that data can be carried though the backbone and sent to its destination.
