Those who adopt a nomadic lifestyle will usually need to maintain connections with work, family, friends, and happenings around the world - in other words, they will need to maintain their social, personal and business networks as they travel.
Mobile internet is what gives most of us the ability to stay connected, but that requires a different, more technical type of network, one that is often not as simple as it should be, especially for those without a technical background. To get the most out of mobile internet requires some basic knowledge of how digital networks work since the technology is far from flawless and is often not user-friendly.
In this guide, we aim to provide you a primer on networks from a mobile internet perspective - what they are and how they work - along with useful and simple definitions for all the arcane network terminology.

- What is a Network?

- Types of Networks

- Wide Area Networks (WAN)
- The Internet
- Network Components
- Network Interface
- Hubs / Switches
