The European nuclear research centre (CERN), based near Geneva, sent 1.1 Terabytes (1,100GB) of data in 30 minutes to the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) at an average speed of 5.44 gigabits per second. That's some 10,000 times faster than a 512K broadband connection and the equivalent of sending an entire DVD movie in around seven seconds. It beat the previous best of 2.38Gbit/sec.

Don't want to nit pick but -
1100(Gb) divided by 1800(30x60) seconds = 0.611GB/Sec
Which is still just a little bit faster than my system <:-))

That's easy for you to say - when your(my) brain works so slowly, it is easy to become muxed ip.
