China Network Allows Download of 150 Films in Less Than a Second

China Launches World’s Fastest Internet

China – Our next story is about the Internet. We can not imagine our lives without it; it’s almost like a basic human right now. But like all rights, the internet is not the same everywhere. It’s not a monolith, and in some places, it is faster than others. Like in China, the country is rolling out the world’s fastest internet. It was activated in July but was launched this Monday. So, how fast is it? You can download 150 4k movies in just a second. If true, it is a groundbreaking development. Our next report tells you how China is planning to win the speed game.

How Fast is High-Speed Internet?

Well, the answer depends on who you ask. In the 2000s, 10 Mbps was fast. That’s 10 megabits per second. That used to be revolutionary. But now, you can have 100 Mbps speed, and even that won’t seem fast enough. As the world grows, so does our internet, and it’s only getting faster.

Who is Winning the Speed Game?

China says it’s the one leading the race. Beijing has launched what it calls the world’s first next-generation internet service. So, how fast is it? 10 times faster than its rivals, the US and South Korea. So, China is ahead of the curve, at least by 2 years according to global predictions.

The Backbone Network

The backbone network connects the main Chinese cities: Beijing in the north, Wan in central China, and Guango in the south of the country. The actual line spans over 3,000 km of optic fiber cabling. This network has passed all operational tests and is performing fine. It was activated in July, and now this week, it’s been officially launched.

The Speed of the Network

So, how fast is this new network? It can transmit data at 1.2 terabits per second. That’s 1200 gigabits per second. It’s astonishing, to say the least. Currently, with a 100 Mbps speed, you can download an HD movie in about 5 minutes. When it comes to an ultra HD movie, a 4k one, it will take around 20 minutes. Beijing says on this internet, you can download 150 4k movies in a second. If you take Netflix and download all of its movies, you’ll be able to send all of it in half an hour. Imagine that!

Now, China isn’t the most trustworthy source, and everything they say must be taken with a pinch of salt. But if true, it’ll be a big boost for China. For years, it has relied on the US and Japan for routers and other internet-related technology. This accomplishment defies industry predictions and puts Beijing in the lead to win the internet race.
