DreamHack and Com Hem have set a new world record with the fastest internet connection: 1,6 Tbps that is being used at DreamHack Summer in Jönköping.
The new world record was announced during the Opening Ceremony and is more than 13 times faster than our old record of DreamHack Winter 2011 at a stunning 120 Gbps. This new record also beats the previous world record set in Great Britain at 200 Gbit/s. With a 1,6 Tbps internet connection 5,3 million people can stream Spotify at the highest quality setting, 123.000 people can watch Netflix simultaneously and it would take less than a second to download Overwatch from Battle.net.
Markus Viitamäki, CTO of Dreamhack: “We at DreamHack love to stretch boundaries, innovate and work with the latest hardware and software at our events. We were one of the first to have both 40Gbps and 100Gbps on our events when these technologies were new. Now we have done it again, with our partners Com Hem and Juniper we bring our visitors a 1.6 Tbps internet connection which is also a world record!”
