And I call on the Congress to pass legislation to establish that information superhighway this year.
A term that describes all of the infrastrucure, including cable, satellites, and assorted hardware, that allows information to be transferred at great speed over large distances to all people.
Note: The term implies an analogy between the construction of an information infrastructure in the Internet age with the construction of the interstate highway system constructed in the last half of the twentieth century.
(Or "Infobahn", "Info Strada") The name coined by US Vice-president Al Gore in the early 1990s for the emerging high-speed global communications network capable of carrying voice, data, video, and other services around the world. These services use satellite, copper cable, optical fibre, cellular telecommunications, and are accessible via set-top boxes or suitably equipped computers.
