1.4Tb/s on the way?


[link to this post]
 
Linky.

Looks to me to be basically about hugely greater throughput on backbones/backhaul, but that has to be good for future costs and services. For example Netflix Ultra-HD (4K?) as mentioned in the video in that link.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 59.4/14.4Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Given the number of hosting solutions still only offering 100 Mbps then this is much more about shifting last uncompressed video data or large intercontinental links.

Hence why I read it, and did not run it in the news, i.e. more about hosting/peering than consumer broadband

Yep - I fully agree. It isn't going to go (directly) consumer-side.

The test was conducted on a 410km (255-mile) link between the BT Tower in central London and Ipswich.


Now I'm positive Ipswich is much less than 255 miles from London, so someone doesn't know their geography!

Correct. 255 miles puts you somewhere on the Scottish border! Ipswich is some 80 miles.

Mind you...if their fibre routing is anything like some of their telephone lines....

It was probably routed "the long way" to be able to do some testing on a typical installation length.

BT has fibre from Adastral Park to BT Tower, some will be as direct as possible and others may route via Birmingham or Coventry to get Network Diversity.

this is about backbone capacity not end user broadband.
