The world is moving on the path of digitisation at a greater speed. As it gradually moves towards a digital society the need for higher internet speed is becoming more and more important.
Additionally, social media giants like Facebook are trying to bring high-speed internet to all areas with the help of AI and robots.
Now Japan recently broke the world record for the highest internet speed ever recorded. Researchers from the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Japan have developed a new 4-core optical fibre. This fibre delivered internet speeds of up to an unbelievable 319 terabytes per second (Tbps).
One can say that it is almost double the previous record of 178 Tbps. After building a long-distance transmission system around a 4-core optical fibre, the NICT researchers upgraded the fibre optic line with four cores.
It is to be noted that the sent information and data did not deteriorate or slow down the internet speed even in the long-distance transfers.
But the long-distance system was simulated in a lab by the researchers using coiled cabling.
But by now you must be wondering what all can be done with this super internet speed.
One can easily download more than 7,000 high-definition movies in just one second with 319 Tbps of internet speed.
Undoubtedly, this high-speed internet network was developed for transferring huge amounts of relevant data across long distances.
