Chinese telecoms provider Huawei has showcased its latest technological innovation - a 700Mb DSL prototype.
The stunning download speeds, delivered over a copper line, were demonstrated in Hong Kong earlier this week.
According to the firm, the technology will enable operators worldwide to build high-bandwidth, cost-effective, and future-proof broadband access networks.
Huawei noted that the prototype exceeds the broadband industry's current DSL capability of 100Mb.
You Yiyong, President of Huawei's Access Network Product Line, said DSL technologies for broadband access are showing "great market potential".
"Our newest DSL prototype demonstrates our commitment to providing customer-centric and groundbreaking solutions and services for operators to enhance their competitiveness and profitability."
In other high-speed broadband news, UK internet service provider Colt announced this week that it had carried out a 100Gb Ethernet trial over an 861km route between London and Frankfurt.
