Maximum Internet Speed Available in the World


Yesterday during discussion with one of cousin, he asked me that what is the maximum internet speed available on the world. I got confused that yes this is a good question and for general knowledge it is very useful one. I decide to do some research and find that what exactly is the maximum internet speed available in the world. Unfortunately i found a few articles on this topic. Still i am not sure that what is the maximum internet speed, however i collect some information on the topic.

DSL/ADSL

Maximum Speed = 25-30Mbit

Wired Ethernet

Maximum Speed 1000Mbits

Satalite Internet

Maximum Download Rate = 1 Gbps

Average Download Rate = 1Mbps

Average Upload Rate = 256kbps

According to SpeedTest.net

maximum internet speed Maximum Internet Speed Available in the World

Another clue that i found on the web about maximum internet speed is here

Scientists have set a new world record for data transmission by transferring a data rate of 2.56 Terabit per second over a glass fibre link of 160 km length.

It means maximum internet speed is 40 Gbit/s

Still it is not clear that what is the maximum internet speed available in the world. Only government agencies and military can answer this question, because they uses internet for defense purposes.

If any one can better answer this question, then feel free to share a solid proof with us so that we can know about maximum download and upload speed currently available in the world.

    2.56 TB is equivalent to 2621.44 GB not 40!

    in India 16 MB is max. Its for business series… only in companies, it will be there, but it will be shared to many pcs and so each one gets around 512/256 kbps at min…

    In USA, 16 MB will be common one… everyone has min of 16 MB …

    1 movie via torrent will be downloaded within half an hour….so USA people are fast in tech updates and uploads… :D
