The fastest private internet connection is owned by???
"75-year-old Sibritt Löthberg from Karlstad Sweden just got her first computer, but it didn't take her long to download all the necessary patches.
Swedish news site The Local reports that Löthberg's home has been tricked-out with a record-breaking 40 Gb/s connection - the first time a private residence has tapped into the internet at such high speeds.
The blazing-fast connection comes courtesy her son, Peter Löthberg, a Swedish optical internet guru working at Cisco.
Ma Löthberg's house was converted into a broadband dog-and-pony act in an effort to promote high-speed fibre connections as a commercially viable platform.
"I want to show that there are other methods than the old fashioned ways such as copper wires and radio, which lack the possibilities that fibre has," said Peter Löthberg.
According to The Local, the secret sauce behind the connection is a new modulation technique that allows data to be transfered directly between two routers up to 2,000 km apart - with no intermediary transponders. This allows information to travel over huge distances without data loss.
With her blistering connection, Sigbritt Löthberg will be able to download a full high-definition DVD in just two seconds. Now if only there was a place for a Swede to utilize such a speed advantage"
Just imagine GB's worth of downloads being downloaded in seconds that would so own. I can imagine her upload rate.
Don't kill her Jyuu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Useless. Hard drive is a limiting factor unless you are using four I-RAM drives in RAID 0.
I just ran HD Tach on my RAID 0 setup and even that's tremendously slow.
I know it.
Old people are into Porn!
plus, the slow upload rate bottleneck.
if we follow the old saying"the faster your internet speed,the bigger your penis"
that 75 year old woman has one hell of a penis...
If an individual had that kind of connection to the net and could fully download at that speed, they'd still be limited by sites that couldn't dish out data as fast as that high speed home connection could take it.
40Gb/s possible download speed...actual transfer throughput on download 10Kb/s. Welcome to internet hell.
Bigger than Jyuu's! :O

Wonder how long before you can write to a hd that quickly... hmmm.... It still takes me 55 seconds to copy 700 mb from one drive to another at home... =(
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
