Researchers based out of Australia's Monash, Swinburne, and RMIT universities say they've set a new internet speed record of 44.2 Tbps over 75 km of standard optical fibre using a single integrated chip source, according to a paper published in the open-access journal Nature Communications. By using a powerful class of micro-comb called soliton crystals,  they demonstrate a line rate of 44.2 Terabits s−1 using the telecommunications C-band at 1550 nm with a spectral efficiency of 10.4 bits s−1 Hz−1.
