New Record For Data Transfer Speed Is 319 Terabits Per Second

Tech and Telecom

As a result, the new world record for fastest internet speed set by Japanese engineers from the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) is insane! They demonstrated a rate of 319 Terabits per second (Tb/s) over 3,001 kilometres (1,864.7 miles) of optical fibres.

The team, led by Benjamin J. Puttnam, made advantage of existing fiber-optic infrastructure while also incorporating new technologies. They used diverse amplifier technologies to create a wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) transmission system.

According to media reports, the new speed, which was accomplished over 3,001 kilometres using 4-core optical fibre, beats the previous record of 178 Tb/s set less than a year ago and is seven times faster than the previous record of 44.2 Tb/s set by an experimental photonic circuit.

NASA, the US space agency, operates at a speed of only 400 Gb/s. In comparison, the average household internet connection speed is 10 Gb/s.
