Researchers have more than doubled the world speed record for Internet data transfer.

Scientists at the CERN particle physics laboratory in Switzerland sent the equivalent of a full-length DVD movie in about seven seconds.

Colleagues at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) received the data.

The land record was set on Oct. 1 by transferring 1.1 terabytes of data over a 7,000-kilometre link in less than 30 minutes, the team said.
I wonder what it will cost?

It will probably only be available for businesses seeing how expensive it will be at first. Once everyone has broadband access someday the price will come down because of the increase in competition.
