Scientists at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center used fiber-optic cables to transfer 6.7 gigabytes of data
-- the equivalent of two DVD movies -- across 6,800 miles in less than a minute.

The team was able to transfer uncompressed data at 923 megabits per second for 58 seconds from Sunnyvale, California, to Amsterdam, Netherlands. That's about 3,500 times faster than a typical Internet broadband connection.


Was being sarcastic. I wonder when they'll offer those services here.

Not quite, but close. Most drives now will do 100MB/s transfer. 923Mb/s = ~115 MB/s. Would be nice to be able to download something, and it go as fast as if I was just copying it on my local computer from one folder to another

I dont think having that kind of service will do any good right now... unless everyone has that service.. IF you can download at a 923megs a sec... but the other end can only upload at 1.5....

still would be cool for companys to be able to connect there networks together like that.
