Scientists break worldwide Internet speed record

  • Tokyo (Japan) - A group of researchers in the Internet2 consortium has set a new record for sending data through the Internet at more than nine gigabits per second.

    The team broke the old record of 7.67 Gbps, which was set last December.  Using modified protocols, they were able to send data across a 20,000 mile path at a constant rate of 9.08 Gbps.

    At this speed, a high definition version of a movie could be downloaded in just a few seconds, instead of over 40 hours on a typical broadband connection.
