Science: Information superhighway reaches light speed

Nothing moves faster than light in a vacuum, but large volumes of data can now travel at 99.7 per cent of this ultimate speed limit, writes Jacob Aron of New Scientist.

In glass optical fibres, light travels 31 per cent slower than in a vacuum. Hollowing them out so…
