New Internet Speed Record

Researchers have set a new data transmission record over the Internet2’s high-speed backbone. The new record announced Tuesday at the Spring 2004 Internet2 member meeting in Arlington, was for transmitting data over nearly 11,000 km at an average speed of 6.25 Gb/s. This is nearly 10,000 times faster than a typical home broadband connection. The network link used to set the record spans from Los Angeles to Geneva, Switzerland
