Download entire Netflix in one second with the Japan Institute’s 319 Tbps internet speed
Imagine having high speed internet access on your phone and being able to download an entire movie in the blink of an eye. It’s a dream come true for kids these days, especially gamers. You will only blink and the movie or game will be downloaded. Well, incredible speed has been achieved in one of the Japanese institutes.
A new record was set at the Japanese National Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, where they were able to achieve a speed of 319 terabytes per second. This is a new world record, the last one being much lower than this one. The University College of London could have achieved a net speed of 178 Tbps. As you can see, the latest is almost double that.
This means that they get a speed of 319 terabytes per second (1 terabyte equals 1000 gigabytes). This university goes way beyond what the University College of London has been able to achieve. When we compare this to other countries, their maximum reported speed was lower. For example in India, it was 38.19 Mbps for fixed broadband.
You can download as many things as you want and it still won’t lose speed. Imagine that with that kind of speed you could watch anything without even talking about buffering. To make you understand how to speed up, let me give you an example.
It’s like watching a movie currently in the highest quality without buffering and over 20,000 movies downloaded in the background in just one second. It’s like downloading all of the content to an OTT platform (Amazon Prime, Netflix) in a second.
Let me tell you, even NASA doesn’t have that kind of speed. Their internet speed is 400 gigabytes per second, well below the internet speed of the Japanese institute. You could say that NASA’s computers download stuff at a slower speed.
