300GHz Band Offers Promise Of “Faster Than Fiber” Data Speeds

Scientists at Hiroshima University, National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, have announced the development of a transmitter capable of moving over 100 Gigabits (0.01 Tarabit) per second within the 300GHz band (290 GHz to 315 GHz). To put this in perspective one could transmit the entire contents of a DVD in just a fraction of a second or transfer enough data to completely fill the average laptop hard drive in a few seconds.

This segment of the band is currently unallocated but expected to be the subject of discussion at the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC) 2019 under the International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Section (ITU-R).
