World’s fastest internet speed recorded at 178TB/s

(Pocket-lint) – For those of us living on more mortal planes, an internet speed anywhere over around 50MB/s can feel seriously nice – you don’t have to worry about pages loading slowly, and you can handily power most streaming services at high resolutions.

As it turns out, though, we’re all playing with baby toys compared to what researchers are achieving in labs. A team at University College London (UCL) recently achieved a new world best for internet speed, topping out at 178TB/s. 

For some much needed context, that’s enough to download the entire Netflix library of shows and movies, every last one them, in a single second flat. It’s also about 24 times the peak daily traffic across the entire UK during lockdown earlier this year, using BT’s numbers. 

That’s quadruple the previous record, which was only achieved earlier this year in Australia, so it looks like the envelope

Republic of Gamers unleashes world’s fastest gaming monitor

After first revealing the world’s fastest gaming monitor at CES 2020 back in January, Asus has today given full details, pricing and availability for the new ROG Swift, which boasts a 360-Hz refresh rate for “silky-smooth gameplay and ultra-realistic visuals.”

In the professional gaming world, every millisecond counts, and Asus believes that its latest envelope-pushing ROG Swift PG259QN will give top esports players an edge over the competition.

The monitor features a 24.5-inch Full HD (1.920 x 1,080) IPS panel with a 360-Hz native refresh rate (though it supports 240 Hz and 144 Hz too) and 1-ms gray-to-gray response time, 400 cd/m2 brightness, is HDR10 compatible and can display up to 16.7 million colors. It also comes with a built-in Nvidia G-Sync processor for the promise of tear- and stutter-free onscreen action without any input lag.

Asus says that click-to-response time has been shown to fall from 34.5 ms

New world record set! Fastest internet is faster than you could imagine

Now, while some us of are still struggling to play a 4K video or streaming live matches without delays, a new record has been set for world’s fastest internet. Engineers at University College London (UCL) set a new world record for the fastest internet in the world. The recently developed technology can download at a speed of 178 Terabits (TB) per second which is equivalent to 1,78,000 Gbps.

For those who are unfamiliar with the internet speeds, this is enough to download the entire Netflix library in less than a second. It would also take less than an hour to download the data that was combined to make the world’s first image of a black hole. The data to achieve this feat was shipped to an MIT observatory, stored on half a ton of hard drives. 

In order to achieve the lightning-fast speed, London-based researchers sent data through much wider

London scientists achieve fastest ever internet speed

The massive speed increases were made possible by building customized amplifiers to boost signal power

Researchers in London have created the fastest-ever internet connection, much quicker than any ever successfully tried before.

The team at University College London (UCL) used amplifiers to enhance the way light carries digital data through fiber-optic broadband to achieve a record 178 terabits per second which are approximately three million times faster than the average UK home connection.

The connection is so fast that it would be able to download the entire Netflix library in just one second.

Dr Lidia Galdino, lecturer in electrical engineering and also a Royal Academy of Engineering research fellow has led the research team at a lab in Bloomsbury.

Galdino says that such “ultra-broadband” will be able to support the next generation of internet, while also back mobile 5G networks used by data-draining applications such as driverless cars and smart

Researchers Just Set a New Record For The Fastest Internet Speed Ever

The internet has transformed most areas of our lives over the last few decades, and the technology keeps improving: researchers just set a new record for data transmission rates, logging an incredible speed of 178 terabits per second (Tbps).

That’s around a fifth faster than the previous record, set by a team of researchers in Japan, and roughly twice as fast as the best internet available today.

With 4K movies about 15GB in size, you could download about 1,500 of them in a single second at the new speed.

This could be more than just a super-fast lab experiment too – the technology used to reach the 178 Tbps record can be added to existing optical fibre pipes relatively easily, according to the scientists behind the project.

Imagine being able to download every single movie and TV show on Netflix in less than a second. Thousands of titles in a literal snap. Researchers at University College London have the ability to do that with a new world record they set for fastest internet—178 terabits a second, or 178,000 Gbps. Lecturer and Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow Dr. Lidia Galdino and team collaborated with Xtera and KDDI Research on the project.

According to UCL’s announcement, that speed is “double the capacity of any system currently deployed in the world.” To get that insanely fast speed, UCL researchers used a greater range of wavelengths than what’s typically used in fiber-optic cables and different amplifier

What if you could download the entire content available on Netflix in only one second? Sounds impossible, right? However, it’s true! Researchers in London have come with the fastest ever internet by reaching a speed of 178 terabits per second or 178,000 Gbps. The speed is double the capacity of any system currently used in the world, and a fifth faster than the previous world record held by a team in Japan with 150 Tbps. The connection is so fast that it would be able to download the entire Netflix library in just one second.
