Scientists just set the record for the fastest data transmission rate EVER

A new record for the fastest ever data transmission rate between a single transmitter and receiver has been set by researchers in the UK, who achieved a rate of 1.125 terabits per second using an optical communications system.

“For comparison this is almost 50,000 times greater than the average speed of a UK broadband connection of 24 megabits per second (Mb/s), which is the current speed defining ‘superfast’ broadband,” said one of the researchers, Robert Maher from University College London. “To give an example, the data rate we have achieved would allow the entire HD Games of Thrones series to be downloaded within 1 second.” Source: ScienceAlert
