Nice speed achieved, and it could be exciting to use these devices, if they can become cost-effective. The next thing we'll hear is people complaining about it flickering. hehehe
UK researchers say they have achieved data transmission speeds of 10Gbit/s via "li-fi" - wireless internet connectivity using light.
The researchers used a micro-LED light bulb to transmit 3.5Gbit/s via each of the three primary colours - red, green, blue - that make up white light.
This means over 10Gbit/s is possible.
Li-fi is an emerging technology that could see specialised LED lights bulbs providing low-cost wireless internet connectivity almost everywhere. Networking Via a Light Bulb: "LiFi" Achieving 10Gbit/s [bbc.co.uk]
