The world is witnessing a significant increase in internet demand amidst lockdown and growing work from culture. However, during this time, slow internet speed often becomes a cause of the trouble. But in the same crisis, London scientists have set a new world record in terms of internet speed.
Can download 178TB file in 1 second
Scientists at University College of London have achieved a terrific downloading speed of 178TB (Terabyte) per second. Explain that one TB is equal to 1000GB. In this case, 178TB per second downloading Internet speed can be estimated. Simply put, you will be able to download about 1.78 lakh movies of 1GB within just a second. Earlier, the world’s fastest Internet speed was 172 terabytes, which was achieved by Japan’s National Institute for Communications Technology. Explain that the minimum internet speed in India is 2mbps. However, for the speed of 178 TB per second, we will have to wait for now, because it is the latest experiment technology, which is yet to be tested extensively.
The world’s fastest internet speed achieved in this way
The fastest Internet speed record in the world has been created by Dr. Lydia Galdino in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Engineering, Xtera, and the Kiddi Research Team. For this, the researchers increased the bandwidth used in optic fiber optics. Meaning, they used a wider wavelength than before. Also used amplifier technology to strengthen the signal. The team of researchers used a wavelength of 16.8 terahertz (THz). For some selected markets, this wavelength is 9THz. The wavelength with which you run the Internet has a bandwidth of only 4.5THz.
