With 46 terabit/s, ESnet6, the world’s fastest internet network, set a new standard. Users may access extraordinary internet speeds of 400 Gbps to 1 Tbps on backbone connections owing to the 24,000 km long fiber optic internet network that covers the whole USA. It is clear what the internet speed is on this network when 1 Gbps is converted to 1000 Mbps. Thanks to ESnet, which was created in 1986 to connect scientists from several US Department of Energy facilities, substantial volumes of raw data may be exchanged.

1.1 exabytes of data were sent across the network in 2021 alone. However, this system does not hold the record for the fastest data transfer speed. One petabit per second, or 1000 Tbps, was reached in an experimental setup in Japan, although this still appears unreachable.
