Internet2 Land Speed Record History
The Internet2 Land Speed Record (I2-LSR) competition for the highest-bandwidth, end-to-end networks is an open and ongoing contest.
Internet2 Land Speed Record entries are judged on a combination of how much bandwidth they used and how much distance they covered end-to-end, using standard Internet (TCP/IP) protocols. Complete rules and a summary of current records are available at the Internet2 Land Speed Record home page.
