Quantum Internet breakthrough sends information between two unconnected network nodes!
A quantum internet breakthrough was achieved after some experts were able to transmit information between unconnected network nodes. Over the past few years, WiFi connectivity has undergone various improvements.

From 3G to 4G up to 5G connectivity. Now, the so-called Quantum Internet is expected to be faster than any type of WiFi connectivity that exists on the planet.
Although it will take years for this technology to be completed, a major breakthrough has been achieved by some researchers from Kavli Institute of Nanosciences, QuTech and Delft University of Technology.
They shared their findings in the new study “Qubit Teleportation Between Nonneighbouring Nodes in a Quantum Network,” which was published by the journal Nature on May 25.

Remember that these nodes are not really connected to each other. This is a major breakthrough since most experiments involving the Quantum Internet have only demonstrated data transmission through connected nodes.
For this reason, experts hope that this achievement will be followed by other breakthroughs, allowing them to build the quantum Internet.
“This achievement is not only a victory for basic science, but also represents a step forward in real-world problem solving needed to take this fascinating quantum application to the next level,” said lead authors Oliver Slattery. and Yong-Su Kim.
Although the latest quantum breakthrough is quite amazing, more robust systems, as well as new interfaces, are needed if experts are to complete the so-called quantum internet.
How Fast is the Quantum Internet?
Various ministries and independent agencies have made efforts to make the quantum internet a reality. One of them is the US Department of Energy (DoE).
The US DoE previously released a plan explaining how the quantum internet can be achieved. On the other hand, the document also explained how fast this internet connectivity can really be once completed.
Experts have estimated that quantum connectivity can transmit data at the speed of light, hundreds of thousands of kilometers per second. Just imagine using online apps and other websites with this internet speed.

Previously, a cyberattack led to a massive internet outage in Europe.
On the other hand, Russia’s connection to the external internet was cut off.
