speed

Want superfast broadband? Try 26Tbits/sec.

Is this pie in the sky or where the future lies for the internet in our homes and businesses? Clearly this is only where research is today and it will probably be some years before this can become reality in our daily lives. But even if we only get a fraction of this speed it will be a huge change from today’s speeds.

The importance of this scientific research is that it is theoretically possible, but theory and reality are often two different things. It paints a picture of what the future might hold. If in the late 1950’s someone had said we would walk on the moon many people would have said you were mad – so who knows where the future internet speeds will end up. It can only improve the question is by how much?
