New fibre optic speed record
« on: May 02, 2011, 02:20:37 pm »
Two separate research groups have just lapped the field, setting a world record by sending more than 100 terabits of information per second through a single optical fibre.

Such lab results are far beyond today's commercial needs. Total capacity between New York and Washington DC, one of the world's busiest routes, is only a few terabits per second, says Tim Strong, of Telegeography Research in Washington. But "traffic has been growing about 50 per cent a year for the last few years", he adds. With bandwidth-hungry video-streaming and social media growing relentlessly, network planners are always searching for ways to expand capacity.

Try mentioning that speed to your ISP and ask them when they will attain anything like that, then wait for the splutters on the other end of the phone.   :D
