PBase's Communication Network (humor)


Sending PBase images thousands of miles requires dedicated antennae, transmitters, receivers, and microwave links. Those pictured here are typical.

In addition, PBase takes extra care to keep track of every image as it passes through the ether. This is a critical function, as every click on an image URL sends a signal to find image XYZ. If PBase doesn't know the GPS coordinates of the image, it cannot serve it to its users. Some images here are of facilities dedicated to this effort.

The next time you see a facility such as these, remember that images are flowing through space to your computer. Subscribers are paying the bill.
