China launches the world’s fastest internet service. It is assumed that this internet will be several times faster than the current network. According to CNN News, this internet speed is 1.2 terabytes per second; that is, it is possible to transfer files equivalent to 150 movies in one second. But this motion is on paper; in reality, it may not be available at the customer level. The Chinese company Huawei reported this information.
Even if customers don’t get 1.2 terabytes per second, people will enjoy higher-speed internet than the current network. High-speed internet has significance, especially in business and stock trading. Its impact will also be felt in terms of national security.
Huawei and China Mobile officially launched this internet service through a press conference this week. They jointly launched the network with Beijing’s Tsinghua University and the education and research network Cornet. It is called the backbone network, which will support 5G technology.
According to a press release from Huawei and China Mobile, the connection has been established between Beijing and the southern part of the country through 1,800 miles of optic fiber cable. There is no word on whether it will be extended to other parts of the country.
