Japanese researchers have just demolished the previous world record for Internet speeds with their own incredible achievement.

According to new reports, the Japanese National Institute of Information and Communications Technology managed to transfer data at a whopping 319Tbps, making gigabit Internet seem obsolete. Even more impressively, the new record they’ve achieved is almost twice the speed of the previous 179Tbps set by a collaborative effort from British and Japanese scientists back in August of 2020.

To achieve this new record, researchers had to upgrade pretty much every component within the system. The team opted for four cores instead of one for its fiber-optic line and used rare earth amplifiers to boost the 552-channel comb laser. To make sure the connection worked over extended distances, the team also simulated a 1,864-mile distance through using coiled fiber and found that there was no loss in speed or signal quality.

Obviously, given that the stellar speeds were achieved in controlled environments within a lab, realistically it could take years before the technology can be implemented for our daily use, but researchers are confident that it can be used in large network projects and assist in the creation of new technologies like 6G.

Elsewhere in the tech world, Eviation has announced the first all-electric passenger plane.
