That's 255 Terrabits per second  

A joint group of researchers from the Netherlands and the US have smashed the world speed record for a fiber network, pushing 255 terabits per second down a single strand of glass fiber. This is equivalent to around 32 terabytes per second enough to transfer a 1GB movie in 31.25 microseconds (0.03 milliseconds), or alternatively, the entire contents of your 1TB hard drive in about 31 milliseconds.

To put 255Tbps into perspective, the fastest single-fiber links in commercial operation top out at 100Gbps, or 2,550 times slower. 255Tbps is mindbogglingly quick; its greater, by far, than the total capacity of every cable hundreds of glass fibers currently spanning the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, 255 terabits per second is similar to or maybe even more than the total sum of all traffic flowing across the internet at peak time.
