Darwin rumoured to have had a hand in the early days of networking

Bern, Switzerland. Source: XPopenNews After digging to a depth of 100 meters in Russian soil, scientists have found copper-wire estimated to be about 1000 years old. The Russians have drawn the conclusion that their forefathers were already using a copper network more than 1000 years ago!

Not to lag behind, American scientists found the remains of glass fiber at a depth of 200 meters in US soil. These fibers proved, after research, to be about 2000 years old. They concluded that their forefathers already had a very sophisticated digital glass fiber network in their possession. And that about 1000 years before the Russians!

A week later, Polish scientists stated in a published report that "after unearthing nothing at a depth 500 meters" they concluded that Poland was already in possession of a "very advanced" wireless network about 5000 years ago!
