Abstract: The internet, apart from huge advantages, also has a number of well-known drawbacks, which deter the economic and scientific progress of the society. The most significant of these - high reliability of data transfer (an advantage), on the one hand, and poor information security (a drawback), on the other hand, - are caused by one and the same reason, namely, the use of packed-switched communications. We discuss the new global/regional information network TVnet, which does not use packed-switched communications. This allows providing for complete information security, while retaining high reliability of data transfer. The TVnet information network offers new services, which are not available in the internet.
