“Twisted” Fiber Optic Cables Could Make The Internet 100 Times Faster

According to reports, researchers have made a new development in fiber optics that could potentially make the Internet 100 times faster.

Published in the academic journal Nature Communications, a group of RMIT University researchers experimented by twisting light into a DNA-like spiral to create a third dimension for said light to carry information at an increased speed. Fiber optic cables currently only use pulses of light to transmit information via color in horizontal or vertical direction, limits defined since the technology’s invention. Although theoretically, the development could be applied to all existing systems it will take years of testing before it can be fully commercialized for public usage.
