World's fastest broadband connection

GodfatherGodfather Registered User regular
edited July 2007 in Social Entropy++
A 75 year old woman from Karlstad in central Sweden has been thrust into the IT history books - with the world's fastest internet connection.

Sigbritt Löthberg's home has been supplied with a blistering 40 Gigabits per second connection, many thousands of times faster than the average residential link and the first time ever that a home user has experienced such a high speed.

http://www.thelocal.se/7869/20070712/

Sigbritt will now be able to enjoy 1,500 high definition HDTV channels simultaneously. Or, if there is nothing worth watching there, she will be able to download a full high definition DVD in just two seconds


I guess that's one of the perks of being the mother of Swedish internet legend Peter Löthberg.

    So now, what, she pirates Lawrence Welk's Collected Works in a split second or something?

    Seriously, who cares? It isn't like there's framework in place to distribute this to the general consumer, it's a publicity stunt and it doesn't effect me in the slightest.

    His tubes are so clogged with porn and mortgage offers that it kills him that this old lady's tubes are so fucking clean.

    Don't be an idiot.

    Okay, so the pipe leading to your house is now bigger than the fucking internet. Do you honestly think you'll ever find a server anywhere that will provide that kind of sustained throughput? No. You're now faster than the rest of the internet. Congratulations. You win bragging rights and a ridiculously huge bill.

    I doubt she actually pays the damn thing, because (stating it again) she spawned Peter Löthberg.

    Hunter: seriously, why did you just quote me without a reply?

    That drives me nuts. If you want to agree with me, then just add the words "I agree" or "totally" or something, or just nod your damn head and don't maek poast.

    damn purty

    also, we got harrassed by the cops for lighting off fireworks on the river in Portland. Then they thanked us for our "cooperation and dedication to the state of Oregon."

    I laughed out loud.

    Just think, she has the world's fastest connection and the most she probably ever does with that is play online bingo.
