Think your internet is fast? This week Nokia will unveil a new data transfer technology that promises to offer up to 1TBps or 1000 Gigabits per second! Nokia Bell Labs, Deutsche Telekom T-Labs, and the Technical University of Munich are going to show off a new tech called Probabilistic Constellation Shaping that they say can offer these types of high speeds through current existing fiber.
Calling terabit internet overkill is one huge understatement for home users but internet providers and companies(such as Google and Amazon) will greatly benefit from the speeds. Current limites sit at around 40GBps.
We still don't know when this type of technology will be available but the they are saying that the demonstration will be made using real world conditions, not in some high tech laboratory. Its just insane to think that in a few years time we will be looking at Google Fiber as though it were old school dial up.
