Entangled microwave photons form a fundamental resource for quantum information processing and sensing with continuous variables. We use a low-loss Josephson metamaterial comprising superconducting, nonlinear, asymmetric inductive elements to generate frequency-entangled photons from vacuum fluctuations at a rate of 2 giga entangled bits per second spanning over the 4-GHz bandwidth. The device is operated as a traveling-wave parametric amplifier under Kerr-relieving biasing conditions. Furthermore, we demonstrate single-mode squeezing in such devices - 3.1±0.7dB below the zero-point level at half of modulation frequency.
