Researchers of the "Bell Labs", research and developement institution of Lucent Technologies, were able to send data with the speed of 2.56TeraBytes PER SECOND over a 4000km (2500mile) line!

Previous record was 1.6TB over a 2000km (1250mile) line.
More info: Can be found here

To make sure there is no dataloss, Bell Labs used the forward error correction en Differental Phase Shift Keying (DPSK) technique.

Hmmmmmmm.......

Just thinking, if everyone could get one of those in thier homes, what would that do to the little ISP's with T-1's????

Just a thought seeing how they are already bit**in about how cable companies are putting them out of business.

Um, I don't think this is going to affect ISPs at all. This new line will be used as an internet backbone..........

Probably not. The Time Warners, and the @homes (when not bankrupt) will still charge top dollar because they can.

Watch, no matter where it goes, the price will still be the same if not more expensive.

I.E. - MSN - was $19.95 before broadband.
Now they are $26.95 AFTER broadband.....

Figure this out????

A line like this would be used for backbones, and possibly by large ISPs.

No one would ever get this in their home. It's like no one ever get's an OC-255 put in their home. The equipment and costs just don't match up.
