Internet 2 reaches 9.08 Gbps

Scientists working on the bigger, better and most importantly faster Internet 2 have achieved a new world speed record. The Internet 2 Consortium has just announced that in late December and early January, scientists at the Univesity of Tokyo slammed gigabytes of information on an around-the-world path at more than nine gigabits per second.

The path started in Tokyo and stretched 20,000 miles going through Chicago, Amsterdam, Seattle and then back to Tokyo. The initial try on December 30th achieved speeds of 7.67 gigabits per second. After some tuning, the scientists reached 9.08 Gbps on New Year's Eve.

The theoretical limit of the Internet 2 is 10 Gbps on a single link.

**********Everyone who has 3 or less bubbles, lets ALL unite and give each other props to get our bubbles back. We must NOT give up, and let the a-holes of this site silence us just because they don't like our opinions/comments, and think their opinions are superior to ours. After all, our opinions should matter too. So what if some of us have a cense of humor, or so what if some of us are total fanboys of a system. We're all fanboys to one extent, or the other. After all this site wouldn't be as fun as it is, would it now? Admit it, some of you come to this site first when you boot up your PC's, or are totally checking up during your working hours. That alone makes you a fanboy of some sort right? I say let us speak our minds too. We deserve to diss each other once in a while, or calling us out on something. It’s what makes this site so much fun. It’s like a comedy really.

A new sign that Broadband might get cheaper. I can't wait til T1 comes to $50 a month. That would be awesome.
