250 mbps Internet now possible

An Australian PhD student has revealed that it is possible to increase speeds by 200 times using the old, and reliable copper lines. The current speed max is around 20 Mbps, this would increase the maximum theoretical speed up to 250 Mbps.

Your neighbours phone lines cause interference on your line and thus slow down your Internet. “Back in the old days, if you picked up the phone you could hear your neighbour’s conversation from cross-talking interference,” Dr John Papandriopoulos said. He says this technology is able to reduce the interference using mathematical coding.

The upgrade would only need to be installed on your modem and at the telephone exchange. Which was quite surprising, seeing as it results in the massive surge in speed without the need for fibre optic cables.
This is great news, especially considering that New Zealand’s nationwide network is copper-based and not designed for high speed Internet.
