Thanks to the proliferation of streaming services like Netflix, having a reliable ISP capable of delivering high download speeds is more important than ever before. That being the case, it’s not at all surprising that ISPs are continuously duking it out with each other in an ongoing race to determine who can offer users the fastest transfer speeds with minimal downtime.
Today, some of the fastest Internet service around comes from services like Google Fiber and Verizon FIOS. But now comes word via ZDNet that we may have a new data transfer champion in our midsts. According to the report, Nokia later this week will demonstrate a new transfer technology capable of delivering a jaw-dropping one terabit of data per second (equivalent to 1,000 Gbps) via optical fiber. The technology is the result of joint research carried out by Nokia Bell Labs, the Technical University of Munich and Telekom Innovation Laboratories.
