BBC World Service – Digital Planet, The fastest ever internet connection

The fastest ever internet connection. Also the Melbourne Monolith – why data quality matters and tiny robots powered by solar energy and moved by laser light.

The world’s fastest data transmission rate has been achieved by a team of UCL engineers who reached an internet speed a fifth faster than the previous record… Dr. Lidia Galdino achieved a data transmission rate of 178 terabits a second (178,000,000 megabits a second) – a speed at which it would be possible to download the entire Netflix library in less than a second.

World’s Fastest Internet Speed Can Download Whole Netflix In 1 Second

The researchers in the UK achieved a data transmission rate of 178 terabits a second.

London:

Scientists in the UK claim they have achieved the world’s fastest internet data transmission rate, a speed which would make it possible to download the entire Netflix library in less than a second.

The researchers from University College London (UCL) in the UK achieved a data transmission rate of 178 terabits a second — five times faster than the previous record.

The record, described in a research paper published in the journal IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, is double the capacity of any system currently deployed in the world.

It was achieved by transmitting data through a much wider range of colours of light, or wavelengths, than is typically used in optical fibre, the researchers said.

They combined different amplifier technologies needed to boost the signal power over this wider bandwidth and maximised speed by

Fastest data transmission: A team of researchers from University College London (UCL), led by Dr Lidia Galdino, worked with two companies, and together they broke the world record for the fastest internet speed. They reached a data transmission rate of 178 terabits a second, which translates to the transmission rate of 178 million megabits in a second. According to a statement by UCL, at this speed, it would be possible to download the entire library of Netflix in less than a second.

The statement added that the record was double the capacity of any system currently being used in the world. The data transmission was done using a range of colours of light or wavelengths that is much wider than that is used in optical fibre. While

World’s fastest internet speed can download the entire library in one second

While you were struggling to watch an HD or 4K Youtube video on your smartphone, laptop, or a smart TV, engineers at University College London (UCL) set a new world record for the fastest internet in the world. The recently developed technology can download at a speed of 178 Terabits (TB) per second which is equivalent to 1,78,000 Gbps.

The previous record for the fastest internet in the world belonged to experts at Japan’s National Institute for Communications Technology with a speed of 172 Terabits per second.

To get an idea about what 178 Terabits per second can do, with this speed one can download the entire Netflix library in less than one second. It would also take less than an hour to download the data that was combined to make the world’s first image of a black hole. The data to achieve this

What if you could download the entire content available on Netflix in only one second? Sounds impossible, right? However, it’s true! Researchers in London have come with the fastest ever internet by reaching a speed of 178 terabits per second or 178,000 Gbps. The speed is double the capacity of any system currently used in the world, and a fifth faster than the previous world record held by a team in Japan with 150 Tbps. The connection is so fast that it would be able to download the entire Netflix library in just one second.
