The speed of Internet recorded at 178 terabits per second by technologist
Experts at University College London have set a new Internet speed record by transferring data at a speed of 178 terabits per second of optical fiber. Simply put, at this speed, 1500 videos with 15 gigabytes can be downloaded in just one second.
The previous record for data transfer from optical fiber was 150.3 terabits per second, which was set in 2018 in Japan. The current record is about 18.5% faster.
Although this success has been achieved on an experimental and limited scale, experts say that with minor and low-cost changes to the existing optical fiber infrastructure, this technology will be able to make the Internet extraordinarily fast with great ease.
It should be noted that at present, the average speed of broadband internet worldwide in terms of downloading is 81.46 megabits per second, while the average speed of 4G mobile internet is 34.51 megabits per second. With a total download speed of 110.9 megabits per second, the UAE ranks first in the world.
Pakistan ranks 112th in the mobile internet with an average download speed of 17 megabits per second and an upload speed of 11.40 megabits per second , while broadband internet has an average download speed of 9.40 megabits per second and an upload speed of 7.85 megabits per second. With 159th number.
How did this new breakthrough of the fastest internet at University College London come about? All the details are published online in the latest issue of “I Triple e Photonics Technology Letters”.
