The U.S. Department of Energy has announced that it has begun testing a new, faster wireless network.
The announcement was made Tuesday at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, according to Bloomberg.
The U.K.-based firm has been working to develop a new network that uses a “polarized” copper wire network to allow for greater reliability and data transfer speeds.
Fios has been testing the network using its own devices and in the public.
The company says it is targeting speeds up to 1.6 terabits per second, which is about two times faster than the current 5 terabitts per second network.
The new network will be rolled out to all of its customers, including Fios Wireless.
Bloomberg first reported the news.
