A team at DTU has just set a record for the fastest ever data transfer speeds, at 43 terabits of data in a single second - this equates to around 5.4TB of data, or 1GB of data in a barely-there 0.2 milliseconds. This technology uses a single laser down a single line of fiber, the same fiber lines that are used in fiber-optic connections.
