Abstract

This report examines the correlation of Internet travel time to real-world travel times, and also compares the growth of the Internet to the growth of other technologies that connect people. In compiling a series of comprehensive datasets, and utilizing scripts to gather specific Internet and physical data, this project examines the impact of trends in connectivity on a local and national scale. Also investigated are the effects of routing on both forms of connectivity, as well as other influencing factors.
