Internet2 Land Speed Record

An international team set new Internet2 Land Speed Records by transferring 6.7 gigabytes of data across 10,978 kilometers (more than 6,800 miles) of network in less than one minute. Using a quantity of data equivalent to nearly two feature-length DVD-quality movies, the transfer was accomplished at an average speed of more than 923 megabits per second, or more than 3500 times faster than a typical home broadband connection, during the SC2002 conference held 16-22 November 2002

The Internet2 Land Speed Record (I2-LSR) competition for the highest-bandwidth, end-to-end networks is an open and ongoing contest.
