Researchers at Bell Labs have reached internet speeds of over 100 petabits per second using fiber-optic communication








The difference between 10Base5 and 10Base2 is the cable used and how it all connects together. With all the connectors with 10Base2, you can have additional problems. With 10Base5, you can have problems tapping the cable and shorting it out. Also, 10Base5 can have a cable length of 500m, whereas 10Base2 is only 185 (rounded up to 200 for the "2" in 10Base2).
