Yes there is one in London. The London telecom giants Alcatel Lucent and BT have tested a field trial for their latest Flexgrid technology in the broadband which has achieved an unbelievable speed of 1.4 Tbps (Terabits per second). The best part of this test was that this lightning fast speed was achieved using an existing commercial grade fiber optic link using a record spectral efficiency of 5.7 per second per Hertz. It was conducted within a distance of 410 km using an existing technology of fiber optic link between the BT tower in London and their Adastral Park research facility in Ipswich.
