Think you've got great fiber connection? Maybe you do, but it's definitely not the fastest. The researchers in UK are tinkering with something even better: a 1.4 terabit connection.
Those lightning fast internet speeds were developed by a joint research team from French telecoms and company Alcatel-Lucent and BT. The magic of this isn't in the hardware, instead, in a new protocol named Flexigrid that lets you lay multiple signals over the top of each other in a single cable.
