Bell Labs said it used two pairs of 30m (98.4ft)-long standard phone cables to achieve the speed in its laboratory.
It suggested the tech could eventually be adapted to offer 1 Gbps in real-world uses.
"It will enable operators to provide internet connection speeds that are indistinguishable from fibre-to-the-home services, a major business benefit in locations where it is not physically, economically or aesthetically viable to lay new fibre cables all the way into residences," said Bell Labs' owner, Alcatel-Lucent.
"Instead, fibre can be brought to the curbside, wall or basement of a building and the existing copper network used for the final few metres."
