A team at University College London was able to build an Internet capable of transmitting data at a rate of 178 terabytes per second, according to “Russia Today” quoted by the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”.
This is the same as downloading every Netflix series library in less than a second, breaking the record for the fastest data transfer rate in the world.
The researchers in London achieved the new record by sending data over a network with much wider wavelengths than optical fibers.
The team started by combining different communication enhancement techniques, which can boost signal strength on a larger scale, and then increased the speed by developing a new engineering modulation to manipulate the properties of each individual wavelength.
