The increased speed is possible because the researchers were able to transmit data through a much wider range of colours than normally used in optical fibre. By combining different amplfiier technologies, they could make the best use of the properties of light that transmitted the data, allowing them to specifically manipulate each individual wavelength.

And WHAT are they downloading all of it to . . . SSD? NO! Downloading does no good if you have nowhere to write it.

Netflix may only take one second, But no matter how long Pronhub would take it would be too quick.

The team behind the breakthrough, from University College London, were able to transmit data at 178 terabits per second. The speed is double the capacity of any system currently used in the world, and a fifth faster than the previous record.

Wavelength division multiplexing has been around since the mid to late 90's.
