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.
Maximum Speed = 25-30Mbit
Maximum Speed 1000Mbits
Maximum Download Rate = 1 Gbps
Average Download Rate = 1Mbps
Average Upload Rate = 256kbps
According to SpeedTest.net
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.
