Lightning Fast Internet

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

How is your internet speed? Researchers at the University College London have created the fastest internet ever measured, with the ability to download all of Netflix in just one second.

The data was transmitted at 178 terabytes per second, twice the speed of any current network and one fifth faster than any previously measured network. This was done by using more colors to transmit data through fiber networks.

Don’t call your cable company and ask for these speeds though. This was a university experiment, not an option on your plan. Building out a network like this would be quite costly. But it’s fun to think about a life without swirly balls of wait time for downloads!
