Researchers from Monash, Swinburne, and RMIT universities have tested the world’s fastest internet speed. The team was able to achieve a data speed of 44.2 Terabits per second (Tbps) from a single light source.
This new technology can support 1.8 million high-speed simultaneous connections, and best of all this technology can be installed into existing infrastructure. The new device known as a micro-comb replaces 80 conventional lasers with a single piece of equipment.
The future goal for the research team is to make this technology low cost and compact that it can be installed for commercial use by the general public in cities around the world.
