In partnership with local school boards and educators, TELUS helps ensure all K-12 students in B.C. and Alberta have access to high speed internet to support virtual learning throughout what will be an unconventional school year

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Even though it’s still early September, the 2020-2021 school year is shaping up to be the most unusual to date. No matter what may happen, students are learning and studying online more than ever before, and TELUS is stepping up to help students and families in need across B.C. and Alberta stay connected by giving them access to high speed internet at home. The TELUS Internet for Good program provides high speed broadband internet for only $9.95 per month. Previously, eligibility for the program was limited to families that were receiving the maximum Child Care Benefit from the federal government. However, in April, TELUS partnered

Researchers set a new world-record Internet speed

Noble Horvath

Researchers at University College London claim they’ve obtained a new top internet speed of 178Tbps – a fifth quicker than the prior record and fast enough to download the entire Netflix catalog in under a second, they say.

To achieve that, the researchers used different bandwidth ranges than are typically used in commercial optical systems. Traditional fiber infrastructure uses bandwidth of 4.5THz with 9THz becoming more available commercially. In UCL experiments, the scientists used 16.8THz.

To do this the researchers used a variety of amplifier technologies, customizing which ones they used for each wavelength to optimize its performance as measured by phase, brightness and polarization, according to a press statement put out by UCL. These customization packages are known as geometric signal constellations.

The amplifiers that they’ve been working with are called hybrid discrete Raman & rare-earth doped fiber amplifiers, and they used the S-, C—and L-bands simultaneously, according to

Researchers set a world record for Internet speed

Noble Horvath

Researcher Dr. Lidia Galdino has worked with two other companies, including Xtera and KDDI Research, to set a world record for Internet data transmission rate. The researchers were able to achieve a data transmission rate of 178 terabits per second, which works out to 178,000 megabits a second. To put that speed in perspective, at such high download speeds, it would be possible to download the entire Netflix library in less than a second.

The record is double the capacity of any system currently deployed around the globe. The team was able to hit such high transmission speeds by transmitting data through a much wider range of light colors, or wavelength, than typically used in optical fiber. Current infrastructure systems use a limited spectrum band with the 4.5 THz.

However, there are 9THz systems currently entering the market. The system the researchers developed uses 16.8THz. To achieve the feet the

Top Internet Speed Test Tools for Your Phone and Desktop

Noble Horvath

The Internet is no longer a luxury rather a commodity because we cannot imagine our lives to run smoothly without it. It will not be wrong to say that our lives revolve much around the internet be it entertainment, news or business, etc. It is your instant connection to the world and your one-stop solution to finding all the information you can be looking for regarding anything. The telecommunication industry has witnessed massive growth over the past few decades because of the excessive demand and use of the internet. We see more and more internet service providers coming forward with the claims of offering the best speeds and services. With so many options available, speed is one of the most crucial factors. 

As users, we are always looking for the blazing fast speeds to ensure that we can carry out our online activities smoothly, to fulfill our education or professional

178 terabits per second is the new world record for internet speed

Imagine being able to download the entire Netflix library, as it stands, in less than a second. This is far from being commercially available any time soon, but the record for the fastest internet speed in the world is now set at 178 terabits per second (Tbps), that is 178,000,000 megabits per second.

To bring things in perspective, the fastest available speed to consumers currently is 10Gbps in Japan. Even the connection developed by United States’ Energy Sciences Network maxes out at 400Gbps.

Engineers at KDDI Research, University College London, and Xtera have developed new technologies to pass through more data through the existing optical fiber setup. Most of the current infrastructure is capable of up to 4.5THz bandwidth, and some new technologies had raised it to 9THz. This new system raises it to a whopping 16.8THz.

The wider bandwidth is the result of

Internet speed record shattered at 178 terabits per second

Noble Horvath

The fastest internet speed in the world has been clocked at an incredible 178 terabits per second (Tb/s) – fast enough to download the entire Netflix library in under a second. Engineers in the UK and Japan have developed new ways to modulate light before it’s beamed down optical fibers, allowing for much wider bandwidths than usual.

That new top speed is an insane feat. It’s 17,800 times faster than the current fastest internet connections available to consumers – 10 Gb/s in parts of places like Japan, the US and New Zealand. Even NASA can’t compete, with its 400 Gb/s ESnet.

It also leaves other experimental devices in the dust, including a photonic chip developed in Australia that clocked a still-impressive 44 Tb/s just a few months ago, and beats the previous record holder – a Japanese team with 150 Tb/s – by almost 20 percent.

“While current state-of-the-art cloud

New internet ‘world record’ speed of 178TB/s would let you download all of Netflix in SECONDS

Noble Horvath

BRIT engineers have smashed the world record for the fastest internet speed, clocking a monster 178 terabytes (178,000 gigabytes) per second.

That’s quick enough to download 22million HD photos in less than a second, or the entire Netflix library in under half a minute.


Researchers at University College London, where the tech was developed, say it’s double the capacity of any system currently deployed in the world.

It’s 17,800 times faster than the speediest connections available to consumers – roughly 10 gigabytes (GB) per second in parts of Japan.

The team hopes faster broadband technology will help keep the price of rapid web access down for netizens of the future.

“Internet traffic has increased exponentially over the last 10 years,” said Dr Lidia Galdino, lead author of a new study describing the achievement.
