Australia Records “Fastest Internet Speed Ever”

You can download over 1,000 HD movies in 1 second.

  • Australian scientists have recently reported that the country has recorded the world’s fastest internet data speed at 44.2 Tbps.
  • This became possible because of a micro-comb technology, experts said.

Hate sluggish internet? Well you won’t have that kind of problem in the future with this new tech in place.

According to a team of researchers from Monash, Swinburne and RMIT universities, Australia has recently recorded the world’s fastest internet data speed ever at an astonishing 44.2 terabits per second (Tbps)!

And just how fast is that, you ask? Well to put it into perspective, it means a user can download over 1,000 high-definition movies “in less than a second,” according to reports.

This is, of course, a surprising development since the country has usually been in the middle of internet speed rankings across the world.

What made the speed possible this time was Australia used ‘micro-comb,’ a single piece of device that “replaces 80 lasers and is much smaller and lighter than existing hardware,” wrote Metro. Apparently, the tech is also capable of supporting “the high-speed internet connections of billions of people across the world, even during peak periods,” the site added.

Naturally, experts have pointed out that the widespread lockdowns caused by the coronavirus pandemic has meant more people are staying home and are using the internet these days for work, education, and leisure purposes. This has placed a massive strain on internet infrastructure.

Monash University electrical and computer systems lecturer Bill Corcoran said:

“What our research demonstrates is the ability for fibres that we already have in the ground… to be the backbone of communications networks now and in the future.

“And it’s not just Netflix we’re talking about here.

“This data can be used for self-driving cars and future transportation, and it can help the medicine, education, finance, and e-commerce industries – as well as enable us to read with our grandchildren from kilometres away.”

Meanwhile, Professor David Moss of Swinburne University, has said that the discovery is indeed “an enormous breakthrough”.

“Micro-combs offer enormous promise for us to meet the world’s insatiable demand for bandwidth,” he remarked.
