Earlier this year, scientists were able to achieve a 100 Gbps connection through fiber. However, researchers have now been able to achieve the same speeds wirelessly.

Karlsruhe Institute for Technology scientists have managed to use sub-terahertz waves (237.5 GHz) to transmit data over 20 meters at 100 gigabits per second.

Multiple data streams could boost the bandwidth, since the experiment used only a single-input and single-output setup, says TG Daily.

The breakthrough in tech is expected to get high-speed Internet to rural areas without having to install expensive fiber. Scientists have predicted these speeds by 2015, which we’ll hopefully see sooner rather than later.
