+ - 186Gbps Long Distance data transfer breaks world r->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: The team achieved two-way data rates of 186Gbps, breaking their previous record of 119Gbps set in 2009. The data's fastest speed in a single direction was 98Gbps.

By contrast current fibre optic networks have a top speed of about 1Gbps.

The distances spanned nearly 131 miles (212km) and relied on the latest optical equipment, highly tuned servers and ran over a 100Gbps circuit, set up by CANARIE, Canada's Advanced Research and Innovation Network.
