Lasers can transmit data very quickly

This is pretty amazing.

Lasers, man.


That’s nothing I told my hairdresser a secret. . .


39,875,000,000,000 bytes per second, or the library of Congress’ digital content in two or three seconds. Crazy.


3.1 million times faster than a typically “fast” home connection of 100 megabits.

It’s crazy.

I think most homes network transfer speeds should be closer to 300 megabits (with decent modern tech) that is the general cap for most WiFi systems. But still, a million times faster is nothing to laugh at! That is absolutely crazy. Technology is moving so fast and it is only getting faster.

Looks like us national average is about 192 megabits/s.

Of course that’s just one report. Here’s another that says it’s 48.

Big country, hard to get that data. Anyway. This is way faster no matter how you slice it.
