There is a new technology being developed now that allows an amazing speed of 2.5 Terabits.
To put that into perspective... Most ISPs offer Megabits speeds. EX- 10 Megabits.
A Megabit is one million (1,000,000) bits per second. (This is a speed of about 125Kilobytes per second download speed)
A Gigabit is one billion (1,000,000,000) bits per second. (This is a speed of about 125 Megabytes per second download speed.)
A Terabit is one trillion (1,000,000,000,000) bits per second. (This would be a speed of 125 Gigabytes per second. Which could fill most current hard drives in under 20 seconds.)
This means a Terabit is a hundred thousand times faster than a megabit. And the 2.5 Terabit sonnection they're testing is capable of carrying "the capacity of more than 66 DVDs - per second."Source
Sure it's only a new technology right now and it's not out for commercial use yet... But with some time it very likely will be.
So with speeds like this, what would you do? How do you think the world would change? (If it would change at all.)
