“Fastest Ever” Broadband Speeds Of 1.4 Terabits Per Second — Achieved

fastest_broadband_speed_uk_quikrpostLondon: The world has a new fastest internet speed, thanks to researchers in the United Kingdom. Alcatel-Lucent and BT claim it’s fastest ever internet speed achieved on commercial-grade hardware, clocking in at 1.4 terabits per second or 1,83,501 Mbps. To put that in perspective, an internet connection of 1.4 terabytes per second could download 44 high-definition movies in a single second, or all of the English version of Wikipedia in 0.006 seconds. Damn.

Using a new protocol named Flexigrid the researchers were able to overlay several transmission channels over the same connection. The resulting ‘Alien Super Channel’ was comprised of seven 200 gigabit per second connections, increasing transmission efficiency by 42.5 per cent when compared to previous efforts. Faster internet speeds have been measured in labs, but the latest trial is the first time such a fast connection has been achieved using “real world” conditions.

The average broadband speed in the United States is somewhere around 8.5 megabytes per second. Even in Ephrata, Washington — the U.S. city with the fastest connection — internet speeds only reach 85.54 Mbps. The U.S. is notorious for lousy internet, and the UK isn’t much better. We’re used to spending hours to download a movie. Speeds approaching 1.4 terabytes per second are enough to make us wet our pants.

By employing optical and electrical multiplexing techniques, i.e., by simultaneously transmitting multiple data streams, and by using multiple transmitting and receiving antennas, the data rate could be multiplied,” said Konig, one of the researchers on the project,.

“Hence, radio systems having a data rate of 1 terabit per second appear to be feasible.”
