A new internet link - download entire films in 5secs :o

I read this in the newspaper to day….

An Internet link 6,000 times faster than broadband – meaning entire films could be downloaded in just FIVE SECONDS – is being developed in California.


Yeah, but no but yeah but no....

New internet link downloads films in seconds

An internet connection so fast it will allow whole movies to be downloaded in just five seconds could soon be a reality.

Scientists in the US have developed a system called Fast TCP that promises to be 6,000 times faster than today's broadband links.

A key feature of Fast TCP is that it could run on the normal Internet infrastructure.

The new system was developed by Steven Low and a team at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena.

New Scientist magazine said Low compared the way the internet works now to driving a car while looking only 10 metres ahead.

"This is OK for driving slowly in a parking lot," he said. On the open road it was necessary to look further."

The first practical test of Fast TCP sent data 10,000 kilometres from Sunnyvale, California, to the CERN particle physics laboratory near Geneva.

The average transmission rate was 925 megabits per second, compared with 266 megabits for ordinary TCP.

"By ganging 10 Fast TCP systems together, the researchers have achieved transmission speeds of over 8.6 gigabits per second, which is more than 6,000 times the capacity of ordinary broadband links," said New Scientist.

Caltech is said to be in talks with Microsoft and Disney about using Fast TCP for video on demand.

Now.... that could be a bit of fun =P. but problem with that for us is that would we be able to notice the speed difference most the time... i mean after you get past around the 1 GB a second mark anything extra wouldnt make too much of a difference. I dont think it will be out to soon for taht reason.. public dont need a connectin that fast .... yet =D

hmm... isn't this rather old news? (I know reading something similar back in march)

They sent 6.7 GBytes from Sunnyvale (VS) over a 10.978km long line. This took under a minute. The speed was 923 Gigabit per second.

Looks like it's the same user added image

That would be cool user added image No more lag when I'm gaming user added image


whatever!

imagine the multiplayer games you could have going though.... it would not be dependant on line speed anymore, but on chip speed.

but to a pointlessly fast extent.. Lan allready goes to 1000 mbit (uh.. not really for home networks obviously and there they aint cheap) but 100mbit as standard which works fine at the moment.. but when multiplayer games are using more advanced CGI and AI.. i think we can see this kinda thing coming closer to reality for us guys user added image
