I was looking around. It found 100mbps to be the fastest speed listed. Is that the fastest? What is the name of this connection and what should i google to learn more?

Any more info? What sort of connection? Internet? Internal LAN? Ethernet? Fiber? Single connection or bonded? Give me enough money and I'll give you networking as fast as you need it. – Smudge Nov 17 '11 at 9:10

40Gbit/s QDR Infiniband is probably the fastest single link network connection you can find.

With DWDM (so that's multiple wavelengths over a single fiber link), you can have over 160 10Gb/s links, so I'll let you do the math.
