Are you happy with your internet speed and you flaunt (silently) in front of others of the speed you have?
Or are you sad that your internet speed is too slow for your liking?
Well, irrespective of what your situation is but when you will know that researchers at University College London have set a new world record for the fastest internet in the world, you are certain to feel pathetic!
The new world record for the fastest internet in the world set by the researchers is 178 terabits per second (Tbps)- that’s 178,000 Gbps.
And if you don’t know then let us tell you, the minimum internet speed in India is 2 Mbps. Now compare the two speeds!
The project was conducted by Lidia Galdino from the Royal Academy of Engineering, Xtera and Kiddi Research.
There have been reports of the fastest internet speeds in Australia which were recorded at 44.2 Tbps and this new speed is almost four times faster.
With the 178 Tbps speed, you can download (literally) everything on Netflix in just one second!
To tap into such insane speeds the researchers applied a higher range of wavelengths instead of the standard optic fibre optics and used newer amplified technology to boost the signal farther while amplifying it.
However, all of this is experimental and this technology is not going to be put to commercial use any time soon.
