The world record for the transfer of data across the Internet has reportedly been broken by telecoms operator Sprint and the Swedish National Research and Education Network (SUNET).

The two organizations announced late last week that they had managed to send nearly 840 gigabytes of data across a distance of 16,346km (10,157 miles) in less than 27 minutes, at an average speed of 4.23 gigabits per second.

This was equal to 69,073 terabit meters per second (a product of the speed of the transmission and its distance), which exceeded the previous record set by Caltech and CERN earlier this year.
