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!
