Research for Faster Internet
The dream of having faster internet within a few years may come true if pure science research by physicists in Hyderabad succeeds.

The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing ( C-DAC), Hyderabad is implementing a project on high speed long distance data transfers. The research efforts are for usage of next generation high speed protocols like User Datagram Protocol-based application level data Transport (UDT) for bulk data transfer applications relevant to Grid or Cloud environments over Internet.

The Minister of State for Communications and Information Technology Sh Sachin Pilot gave this information in the Rajya Sabha recently.
