.... lets assume that universe expanded with an average 1/10 speed of light - still probably a very high number but lets assume it. Assuming it did it for the past 14 billion years, it means its current radius would be about 0.1 * 14 = 1.4 billion lights years. That would mean that its current diameter would be about 3 billion light years - that would be the max distance within it.
