Countries With Lightning Internet Speeds

How fast is your internet? Do you get a million gigabits a second? Probably not, but could you?

Scientists recently broke a speed record sending 1.8 petabits of information between a laser and a single optical chip system in one second. That amount, well over a million gigabits, is more than twice the amount of internet traffic the world transmits in one second, according to PC.

What the heck is a petabit? It has nothing to do with pocket bread. It’s 1,000 terabits, a million gigabits, or in layman’s terms, the data equivalent of about 250,000 movies, according to Dropbox, which says one terabit holds 250 movies.
