Fastest Internet Speed in the World: Japan Hits a New High

Hamariweb  |  Oct 27, 2021

Japan sets fastest Internet speed record by achieving 319Tbps data transfer rate. Almost 10 million times faster than the internet we usually have at home. Using specialized optical fiber cables, a team of Japanese engineers has achieved the fastest data transfers ever. It now claims that it can implement the technology on existing fiber optics, increasing the speed of our home internet.

To break the world record for fastest internet speed, researchers at Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology created an experimental optical fiber with four cores rather than just one. They then combined their fiber with a laser that fired pulses of varying wavelengths as well as multiple signal amplification techniques. This allowed them to transmit data at 319Tbps over a distance of more than 1,800 miles.

High internet speeds are becoming increasingly important as remote work becomes the new norm for many people around the world. Since the World is adapting to work from home due to coronavirus, the demand for high speed internet surges. The NICT team achieved a data transfer speed of 319 terabits per second over a distance of approximately 3,000 kilometers. The previous record for the fastest data transfer was 178 Tbps set by University College of London.
