ScienceDaily (May 23, 2011) — Scientists at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have succeeded in encoding data at a rate of 26 terabits per second on a single laser beam, transmitting the data over a distance of 50 kilometers, and decoding the information successfully. This is the largest data volume ever transported on a laser beam. The process developed by KIT enables the transmission of 700 DVDs' worth of content in just one second.


Wow!! 26 terabits per second, that makes 26.000 gigabits or 26.000.000 megabits per second.


Thinking that here we only have 100 megabits per second (at the very max speed....)
