Sure, it`s just a huge hub with "driving rules" /protocols, but it wouldn`t happen.
1. It would take 40-80 years to gather the same amount of info, if not more.
2. Nr. 1 because of there already is a functioning internet.
3. There is no big money involved to build another. The main reason for the first mainland -> mainland cables were the stock exchange. Telegraph,
phone and phone was changed to signals via a modem and "decoded" into data. Then you let go of the modem and upped the bandwidth. Computers went
faster and server storage became a profitable business. The average joe wanting in on the joy of the internet was also a trigger for phone companies /
cable companies to build more "internet structure".
Bottom line is that Money was the biggest reason the internet was built. As long as we have one, we don`t really need another.
But I do imagine that in 20 years the "hubs" will be floating in space. Wireless bandwidth will be massive and it will be lightning fast. After that
the question is who wants to get paid for routing traffic through the "hub". And who own`s space.. who can launch a satellite.
With no need for a line you`re only issue will be connecting wireless (paying for the routing through satellite and bandwidth used). The satellites
will need to gather all info from servers (competition principle) and nobody can stop every single broadcasting server.
My vision at least..
Edit: Btw., the biggest problem will be wireless hacking and solutions for forever-random cryptation.
I simplified it as much as possible, for layman term purposes.
