The Most Eggciting Network in Town!

Networks are vital for trade, commerce and transportation

In 1869 the Transcontinental Railroad was built that revolutionised the population and economy of the American West. As a vital link for trade, commerce and travel it joined the eastern and western halves of the late 19th-century United States.

The Transcontinental Telegraph was constructed alongside the route of the Transcontinental Railroad. This was a milestone in electrical engineering and in the formation of the United States of America. It was the only method of near-instantaneous communication between the east and west coasts during the 1860s.

Check out this video about the history of communications.

There is no denying just how important our networks are today. Road, rail, sea, and air.  Sea Fibre Networks have built a vital “bridge” under the Irish Sea that connects Ireland to the UK. It transports huge amounts of data and it’s called CeltixConnect!

For those tuning into the Masters Golf Tournament (and some of those who are attending!) in Augusta this weekend here are some smart facts you can recall:

The course record for the Masters is a nine-under par 63, held by Nick Price (1986) and perennial Augusta choker Greg Norman (1996).

The Masters wasn’t played between 1943 and 1945 because of World War II. During that time, hundreds of cattle and turkeys were raised on the course to assist the war effort while 42 German Prisoners of War worked on the grounds.

Bad news for us: Mobile phones are strictly forbidden within the grounds of Augusta National. Rory McIlroy was left mortified when his went off during a press conference earlier this week, but somehow we don’t think they’re going to kick him out of the tournament!
