Kosta Grammatis explains how high-speed Internet could help his organization, A Human Right, in its mission to make Internet access a human right throughout the world.

Blasting away all previous records, a data rate of 26Tbps over a single optical fiber with just one laser has been achieved by researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany. At a rate of 26Tbps, 3.3 terabytes — 3,328 gigabytes — can be transferred in a single second. If you had a system capable of writing that much data to storage, the entire Library of Congress could be transferred in just 3 seconds.

“Our extended broadband capacity means that all teachers may now access the Internet at the same time. Prior to this expansion …teachers were unable to count on technology, especially video streaming, to work during a lesson if it was needed during high peak times. There were occasions where the connection was so slow due to high usage that even sending an email was a struggle. Now teachers do not have to hesitate when they want to use technology in their daily lessons because they know that we have the broadband capacity to meet all of our needs.”

A New 4,000 Mile Cable Will Carry Internet Across the Atlantic With Blistering Speed

            Dubbed "MAREA," the cable's 160 terabit-per-second bandwidth would be enough to send about 4,500 two-hour HD movies from one coast to the other in a single second.
