by | Feb 26, 2021 | Episodes

Located over 1,800 miles away from the nearest continent, Hawaii is the most remote island chain in the world. And yet thanks to the internet, people in Hawaii are more connected to the outside world than ever before. But have you ever stopped to think about how it is that people in Hawaii are able to access the internet? How is it that someone in Hawaii is able to do a video conference call or post a photo to social media despite being in the middle of the Pacific Ocean? What about the future of Hawaii’s internet infrastructure? We address all these questions and more on this episode of Transmissions from Hawaii.
