    Exclamation German ISP Delivers World Record Internet Download Speed of 4700Mbps

    German ISP Delivers World Record Internet Download Speed of 4700Mbps

    A German cable operator, Kabel Deutschland (KD), claims to have become the “first” in the world to “successfully achieve” a broadband download speed of 4700Mbps (Megabits per second) during one of their real world field tests (more bandwidth than many current PC and laptops could process).

    In fairness KD aren’t quite the first. Back in 2007 a 75 year old Swedish granny managed an astonishing 40 Gigabits per second (here). By comparison KD’s current network in the city of Schwerin delivers a more standard speed of up to 100Mbps for home subscribers, yet clearly they could go a lot faster.

    Lorenz Glatz, CTO of Kabel Deutschland, said:

    “The Schwerin field test shows that an 862 MHz upgraded cable network is able to broadcast download speeds of up to 4.7 Gbit/s. Using this speed, a DVD could theoretically be downloaded within eight seconds. Current standard laptops or modems cannot even process these high speeds. It will take many more years until users find online services and web content that need a download speed of up to 4.7 Gbit/s.”


    Crucially the field test, which was conducted by using the EuroDocsis 3.0 standard in a local School, did not require any new civil engineering work. KD states that they needed to use “channel bundling” to achieve the speed, although they don’t state how many channels were bonded. This could be significant because the network would need to leave some capacity spare for their other services, such as TV.

    Back in the UK Virgin Media are known to be testing broadband download speeds of up to 200Mbps (20Mbps uploads), which have always been expected to arrive before the end of this year but that is by no means confirmed. Virgin will also be keeping a close eye on demand for BT’s rival 330Mbps FTTP service, which is due to launch at the start of July. Demand is crucial, yet sometimes bragging rights can be equally important for marketing departments.

    The question of whether or not an ISP could actually deliver such speeds on a commercial scale (certainly not yet) is often forgotten. Likewise nobody could make use of 4700Mbps at home but it’s nice to see that there is a future that goes well beyond “superfast“.

    Ah, I wish I had a connection like that, then downloading Max Payne 3 would be a breeze.

    It would take 8 second to download a dvd at that speed. So 48 sec to download max payne 3. Here downloading takes weeks

    Entirely pointless, this is not consumer grade and don't expect it to be anytime soon.

    In terms of better things, what's stopping them from doing 10GE STM while they're at it? Pointless media hype.

    As smartphones are becoming increasingly popular, many ppl will have the sudden urge to just watch a movie at the spur of the moment. Some may choose to stream it, but some may wish to download it inorder to watch it while away from the wi-fi. For example- walk into a starbucks/fastfood place, download a movie in 10 secs. Then walk out and hop onto the bus, subway, car, whatever, while watching a movie on your phone/ipod.

    The companies in BD are trying to "milk the cow" as long as it lasts. Everytime they increase their speeds by a little, they want you to buy a new modem for 2-5000tk. For example- the average speed on broadband is 10-20kb/s. You want some more speed, you gotta get "fiber optic", and pay more and pay a connection-fee. You want even more speed, you gotta get wimax, and buy modem for 5000tk or smthing like that (for 60kb/s). When in reality, a broadband itself should be able to process that speed, upto many Mb/s.

    In my house, i use a DSL line (which gives me 350kb/s), which is a type of "broadband" connected thru phone-line (similar to dial-up technology), thats the standard here in NY. And wimax?? that is some futuristic technology sh!t right there. nobody uses wimax in the US. I think one day, the internet companies might ask you to get a satellite-dish inorder to increase your speed to 100kb/s. Because all these "upgrades" are just excuses to charge more money. Theyre not needed at all. Rant over (i know ppl get pissed off at my posts, cuz I MAKE SENSE).

    No, they're not. The government is the issue, not the companies themselves.

    The government is also dead bent on 'protecting the local fiber industry', which namely is BSCL (shitty, welp). Larger last mile fiber path providers such as Tata/Flagtelecom/Seabone/Singtel have expressed interest to directly come here landing their own fibers before, three guesses to why that didn't happen.


    As for why this is useless, better stuff exist and have existed since the 2000s. As I said, pointless media hype, etc.
