Salt Lake City Gets One of the World's Fastest Networks

Beginning this weekend, Salt Lake City will have one of the fastest networks in the world. The network will deliver a sustained 800Gbps, but a word of warning: don’t get too used to the speed, it will only be there for a week. When SC2012 Super Computing conference attendees pack up and go their separate ways, so goes the super network.

To set up the super network, SCinet teamed with the Utah Education Network and the University of Utah to acquire access to miles of fiber optic cable in the Salt Lake metro area and into the Salt Palace.
