The University of Alabama at Birmingham will launch high-speed internet capabilities in a $2.5 million investment.

The internet will reach 100 gigabits per second. That's 10 times the previous capability at the campus and up to 10,000 times the capability of standard home-internet speeds.

Students, faculty, staff and guests will be able to use the internet, giving the community a competitive advantage in education, research, innovation, entrepreneurship and patient care, the university said in a press release.

"UAB has world-class faculty, researchers and students intent on changing the world," said Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer Curt Carver. "Hundred-gigabit speeds are not just about the flow of information and data into the university. This is ultimately about collaborating worldwide and the creation of novel ideas, new approaches and UAB's delivering innovation. To change the world, you have to be deeply connected to it."
