Scientists break world record for data transfer speeds

Researchers are claiming a new world record for data transfers over long distances.

Data was moved back and forth at a combined rate of 186Gbps (gigabits per second), fast enough to transfer two million gigabytes of data or 100,000 full Blu-ray discs in one day.

It could pave the way for networks with standard speeds of 100Gbps.

That would speed up the sharing of scientific research, such as that at the Large Hadron Collider — via redwolf.newsvine.com
