LiFi internet might just be 100 times faster than WiFi Science & Technology

The pilot testing of LiFi internet, an alternative technology to WiFi, has proved that it can send data at up to 1GBps, according to a report in The Telegraph UK. This is almost 100 times faster than the present WiFi technology.

LiFi uses light to beam information via air. The technology was first discovered by Professor Harald Haas of the University of Edinburgh in 2011.

Professor Haas had talked about the idea on TED talks in 2011, which has seen 1.7 million views on YouTube.
