Local whiz speeds up broadband by 200 times

Harnessing the potential power of telephone lines
and DSL broadband, the technology will deliver internet speeds up to
250 megabits per second, compared with current typical speeds of
between one and 20 megabits per second.
Papandriopoulos, who has patent applications for the technology being
processed in the US and Australia, won one of Melbourne University’s
top academic prizes yesterday, a Chancellor’s Prize for Excellence in
Telephone wiring was poor quality and was not designed for high-speed internet when it was created, Dr Papandriopoulos said.
in the old days, if you picked up the phone you could hear your
neighbour’s conversation from cross-talking interference,” he said.
that doesn’t happen any more with voice calls, it does with the
broadband internet – your telephone line interferes with your
neighbours and everyone in your street’s internet.”
Papandriopoulos’ research, which took a year to complete, uses
mathematic modelling to reduce the interference that slows down
