Google's 50-Gigabit Internet Is Already Being Tested – PCW

By the time you click on the download button, your favorite game will already be downloaded.

Although gigabit internet is not a given in Hungary, and is well above average, much faster networks are already being tested in many parts of the world. Google and Nokia launched the world’s first 20-gigabit network at the end of last year, which is significant because this speed was achieved without modifying the existing optical cables. But of course they have no intention of stopping there.

The two companies announced that they have begun testing the 50-gigabit network. Naturally, Google Fiber’s infrastructure is also hosting the tests in Kansas City this time, and download speeds of 41.89 gigabits per second have already been achieved.

With this, Nokia wants to prove to ISPs that a 50 Gig PON (passive optical network) network fits snugly into an existing system, and there is no need to pick up and replace cables that are already laid.

Of course, 50G PON isn’t quite there yet, reaching “only” 19.6Gbps download speeds, so it’s not quite as good as the 20G package. For the latter, I’d like to build the appropriate network in all existing Google Fiber markets by the end of 2024. Meanwhile, Nokia is already testing 100G PON in Australia, with a prototype due in 2022.
