Countries With Lightning Internet Speeds

What is your internet speed? Are you getting a million gigabits per second? Probably not, but can you?

Scientists recently broke a speed record by sending 1.8 petabytes of information between a single laser and optical chip system in one second. That amount, more than one 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 petapet? It has nothing to do with pocket bread. It’s 1,000 terabytes, or one million gigabytes, or, in common people’s terms, the data equivalent of about 250,000 movies, according to Dropbox, which says one terabyte contains 250 movies.
