In the newest release from the “Informed” series, Rob Lowe takes viewers into the technology behind something we use every day: The Internet. The focus of the program will be on the technology that gives us high speed connectivity. In the 21st century, Americans take internet connectivity for granted since it can be accessed from virtually anywhere, from devices ranging from cell phones to tablets. The team working on this project will meet with computer engineers and scientists, as well as IT specialists to find out what advancements have been made in recent years to internet connectivity.
If you’re old enough to remember the days of sluggish dial-up internet and losing the signal when the phone would ring you appreciate the advanced networks we have today. If you’ve ever wondered how we went from such slow speeds to the lightning fast internet of today then you’ll want to make sure you tune into this latest episode from “Informed” with Rob Lowe.
