Default The Fastest Real-World Internet Is 1000x Quicker than Google Fiber

(SIAP)

1.4Tbps. That's 1.4 Terabits per second. And they did it across existing fiber...simply a new protocol stack.

How fast is 1.4 Tbps? Fast enough to stream any one of the following in one second:
  • 64 hours of HD Netflix
  • 38 hours in 3D or 4K
  • 36,409 songs from Spotify
Of course we don't have that much fiber laid down yet - but Google's changing that. Who knows - by the time this makes it to primetime it might be a mid-tier speed.

Sheez - I still remember using a 1200 baud modem...and how fast those new Boca Raton and USRobotics 56K modems were!
