    The internet is said to be connected to the world by servers, transponders and satellites. Then i read somewhere that internet cables underground start from america across europe then to arab countries and then to india. Then is the internet that i get in india is filtered/sorted? The webpages seem of re-run bots servers of 1990s. The forums too seem selective. Then where is the real internet? Banking internet?

    The Internet is decentralized. Large segments of it can function independently. Though some bureaucratic organizations indeed are in the USA.

    You may see how packets go using a command named tracert on Windows.

    Just run cmd.exe and type tracert www.example.com there. Try some American, European etc. sites in place of www.example.com.

    Some nations do filter the Internet. These includes China and Arab nations, but I do not think they are filtering foreign traffic. I'm not sure about India. Refer to your laws yourself.

    This may be your provider. Some providers are known for filtering the Internet on voluntary basic (But this depends on country and the nature of provider: companies and educational institutions are desperate here.).

    Then where is the real internet? Banking internet?
    Web is just a subset of the Internet. The Internet includes (but is not limited to) IRC, p2p networks, virtual private networks.

    The email corporations have big building offices/servers like yahoo, msn, google etc. So do they assist in financial trading? Are they multinational banks?
