Comcast tests 1 Terabit network [Comcast Roundup]

"Comcast tested a 1 terabit per second network between Ashburn, Va., and Charlotte, N.C., the first week of October, the cable giant and its vendor partner announced during a cable equipment show Tuesday. The field trial not only spanned 1,000 kilometers (621 miles), which puts it into real world viability, but it also carried live data traffic."
