Abstract: The Internet is an example of a general physical problem dealing with motion near the speed of light relative to different time frames of reference. The second order differential equation (DE) takes the form of 'time diffusion' near the speed of light or alternatively, considered as a complex variable with real time and imaginary longitudinal components. Congestion waves are generated by peak global traffic from different time zones following the Earth's revolution defined by spherical harmonics and a day/night bias. The DE is essentially divided into space and time operators constrained by the speed of light c, band capacity w and a fractal dimension Z (Hausdorff dimension). This paper explores the relationship between the dynamics and the network including the addition of fractal derivatives to the DE for regional networks for 0 < Z < 1.
