Correction: Wrong Blu-ray disc copying times

This story initially misstated the 1Tbps data-transfer speed in terms of Blu-ray disc copying times.

This story, " Ethernet's future: How fast is fast enough? " initially misstated the 1Tbps data-transfer speed in terms of Blu-ray disc copying times.

The standard, to be produced by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, will likely reach data-transfer speeds between 400 gigabits per second and 1 terabit per second. For comparison, that latter speed would be enough to copy two-and-a-half full-length Blu-ray movies in a second.
