Want faster internet? Then Australia is the place to go because they have just broken the record for the fastest internet.
Researchers based out of Australia’s Monash, Swinburne, and RMIT universities have set a new internet download speed of 44.2 Tbps.
In theory that is enough speed to download the contents of more than 50 100GB Ultra HD Blu-ray discs in a single second.
The new record was set over 75km of standard optical fibre using a single integrated chip source. This means this technology could be used on existing internet lines.
The record speed was achieved, thanks to a piece of technology called a micro-comb. This is a new technology which provides a more efficient and compact way to transmit data.
Now, the researchers say the challenge is to turn the technology into something that can be used with existing infrastructure.
However, don’t hold your Fortnite breathe for quicker speeds. The experts said this kind of connection would only service community internet exchange hubs.
