Wide Area Network (WAN)
A WAN (Wide Area Network) connects multiple LANs to one another over great geographic distances, the size of a country or continent.
The speed available on a WAN varies depending on the cost of the connections (which increases with distance) and may be low.
WANs operate using routers, which can "choose" the most appropriate path for data to take to reach a network node.
