Define information highway.

The information superhighway is an ever-growing global information and communication network of fibre optic cables that links computer and other communication networks, such as telephone networks, cable television networks and satellite communication networks.

       Information as well as audio and video services are available through the Internet.All types of information are digitalised and packetted before  transmission over the Internet, each packet contains packet routing and assembly instructions called protocols. The protocols give the destination,return address and how the receiving computer can rearrange packets back in to the original information.
