Scientists claimed to download 1,000 HD movies per second, citing the fastest internet service.
According to the World News Agency, scientists from Australia have claimed that the Internet speed reaches 44.2 terabits per second (TBPS), which is millions of times higher than the average broadband speed in different countries.
TBPS Internet speeds have so far been achieved in the laboratory, but the system has been able to work in Australia’s fiber optic network, allowing companies to provide high-speed broadband to customers.
The research team set a new record using the existing infrastructure with the help of a micro comb device, replacing 80 lasers in existing telecommunications hardware.
Researcher Dr. Bill Corcoran of Monash University says that with the increase in homework, social media and streaming as a result of the Coronavirus epidemic, we know how to increase Internet infrastructure in 2 to 3 years.
“Our research demonstrates the potential of the fiber network that is present on Earth, which will be the backbone of communications networks now and in the future,” he said.
“What we are developing will be able to meet the needs of the future. This data can be used for automated driving vehicles and future transportation, helping the pharmaceutical, education, finance and e-commerce industries,” he said.
