178 Tbps speeds allow you to download everything on Netflix in just one second. But don’t get excited, speeds like these are not going to be made commercially available any time soon.
If you thought your internet speeds were bad or too slow let us tell you about the fastest internet in the world to make you feel worse. Researchers at University College London have set a new world record for the fastest internet in the world at 178 terabits per second (Tbps). That’s 178,000 Gbps.
The project was conducted by Dr Lidia Galdino from the Royal Academy of Engineering, Xtera and Kiddi Research.
Earlier, there were reports of the fastest internet speeds in Australia which were recorded at 44.2 Tbps. This new speed is almost four times faster.
To tap into such insane speeds, UCL researchers applied higher range of wavelengths instead of the standard optic fibre optics and used newer amplified technology to boost the signal farther while amplifying it.
