Waypoint is a UNSC communications network operated on both local and interstellar scales, essentially a descendant of the 21st-century Internet. Part of the UNSC's interstellar communication network, it is the primary delivery service for mail across interstellar distances for both civilians and military personnel. Waypoint also serves as a major news source, featuring many prominent public news channels, such as Waypoint Nine. Individual starships, such as UNSC Infinity, often also have their own shipboard Waypoint intranet.
Waypoint is considered less secure than the ChatterNet, as it is often monitored by intelligence agencies, such as the Office of Naval Intelligence. If a certain word or phrase that is deemed of interest is said during a Waypoint call, the entire conversation will be flagged for review by ONI.
