Researchers in Australia in a latest experiment about internet bandwidth achieved data transfer rate of 44.2 tbps (nearly 44,200 Mbps). This test was conducted using a dedicated fiber optic network used by research and education institutions, with the transmission being sent from the RMIT lab on Swanston St in Melbourne’s CBD to Monash University’s campus at Clayton through a 76.6 kilometer loop of fiber-optic cables.
The new record speed of 44.2tbps (terabits per second) shattered the previous record of 30.1tbps, and the chip used in the latest test is said to have used less than half the spectrum.
The current achieved highest speed 44.2 terabits per second can download more than 1000 HD movies in less than a second. This means you will be tired of connecting hard disk drives before download finishes.
Setup for 44.2 tbps internet
While current highest speed available for public consumer is in Gbps, most of countries are still using broadband and average internet speed lies below 5 Mbps in many countries. This currently achieved highest speed (44.2 tbps) can be thousands time faster than the current available highest internet for public.
