Is your Internet speed too slow? Well, there might be good news for you in the near future.

This week, IBM announced that its scientists have set a new speed record for big data that could very well enhance Internet speeds to 200 to 400 gigabits per second, even at very low power. The improvement in speed originates from a technological device that can be used to boost big data transfers between clouds and data centers four times faster than the technology utilized today.

Presented at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco, California, the laboratory prototype indicates that at this speed a 160 gigabyte ultra-high definition movie or 40,000 songs could be downloaded in only a few seconds rather than two hours.
