The record speeds of a few gigabits a decade ago today seem pointless. Scientists in Japan, specifically at the Institute of Information and Communication Technology, have broken the record of internet speed with 319Tbps.
To put it in context, it is twice as fast as 179Tbps set by British and Japanese researchers in August 2020.
The fiber optic line used for this test contains four cores instead of one and was realized at a distance of 1864 miles without losing either signal quality or speed.
As with any other experiment it will take time before this test is implemented en masse. While quad-core fiber optic systems can be implemented over existing networks, they are very costly and can initially be applied to Internet backbone networks and major projects where capacity is more important than cost. / PCWorld Albanian
