What is Backbone?
Also called the Internet backbone, this is the main link that connects smaller networks in the Internet. The ISP who provides you with the internet connection is the last link in a long chain of local, regional, national, pan-national, and international networks that connect to each other through a global Internet backbone. In one sense this is the main information highway along which zips large volumes of data going to and fro across the globe.
