    WANs are all about exchanging information across wide geographic areas. They are also, as you can probably gather from reading about the Internet, about scalability—the ability to grow to accommodate the number of users on the network, as well as to accommodate the demands those users place on network facilities. Although the nature of a WAN—a network reliant on communications for covering sometimes vast distances—generally dictates slower throughput, longer delays, and a greater number of errors than typically occur on a LAN, a WAN is also the fastest, most effective means of transferring computer-based information currently available.
