Fast Radio Bursts are strong millisecond signals observed by the Arecibo and Parkes Radio telescopes. They have likely extragalactic origin and their source is unknown. Their wavelength is not far from the wavelength predicted by quantum gravity for the explosion of a primordial black hole via tunnelling to a white hole.
