Go here to read about distributed computing/networking: As an example, you can imagine your bittorrent software, which looks for people who have the files that you are searching for on a peer-to-peer network and downloads different "chunks" of the same file simultaneously from different users, thus increasing your speed of download, and reducing traffic volume between two peers, at the same time.
