submit 'Faster, Cheaper Internet Might Be Coming Soon Thanks To A Breakthrough Study ' to facebook
Researchers pushed data through a fibre optic cable at a blistering 12,000 kilometers and were able to deciphered the data after it traveled the length of the cable. Normally, the faster data is pushed through a fibre optic cable, the more distorted the data becomes, making it unreadable by the time it travels the length of a cable. This new technology could lead to faster internet because the data used in the study pushed through at 12,000 kilometers traveled through the cables with standard amplifiers and no repeaters - basically the same cables used to provide internet to the masses.
