Broadband speed record broken in county


[link to this post]
 
Scientists have managed to get speeds of up to 1.4 terabytes a second on a link from the BT tower in London to Adastral Park near Ipswich.

That is fast enough to transmit 44 HD movies a second!

That's a first!


No, not the speeds - they were discussed here last week, but you actually including a link!

And it would also help if you reported teh actual facts too. 1.4 Terabits per second or Tb/s or Tbps not TeraBytes.

And previously Alcatel-Lucent have done 31Tbps over a single 7200 km fibre.

Once 100Gbps optics are as cheap as Gigabit ones then I might start to bother thinking about this as consumer news

The Alcatel/BT record was not the overall data rate but the spectral efficiency.

It's also not broadband - at least not within the meaning of our common "Broadband Internet Access" terminology.

It might be a fast data connection, using fibre as a physical layer. But it is for core network usage, rather than broadband access for the public.

But this one still makes me chuckle, this is a genuine end user rather than a carrier connection.
