Li-Fi advances even further
For those of us still trying to get used to the very idea of Li-Fi, this latest news might come as an even bigger surprise. After the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in Germany reported that they had achieved the fastest Li-Fi speed at 3Gbit/second, UK scientists have now one-upped that with new speeds of 10Gbit/second, making it more than 250 times faster than the fastest broadband connections.
Li-Fi is a version of Wi-Fi that transmits data through visible light, and looks set to be the future of internet connections. The fact that light is far more plentiful than radio waves (which Wi-Fi is based on) means that Li-Fi is far more reliable, and can bring about much more data density.
