Telecommunications are fundamental to the online industry and this article seeks to place telecommunications networks within the context of information retrieval. The history of network development is discussed against a background and explanation of the various technical forms of telecommunications networks that existed at the beginning of the nineteen sixties and have since developed. The remainder of the paper examines the networking resources that have become available since 1984.
