A Brazilian researcher managed to break the speed record for sending information on the internet.

Imagine that you want to download all the content from Netflix (and you have enough space on your computer).

How long do you think you should wait?

The person who lives there Singapore, where the world has the fastest home connection, should be 4 years, 4 months and 24 days to download everything the platform offers, which is estimated to be 3,600 terabytes (TB).
