75-year-old has world's fastest private internet connection

Published Thursday 12th July 2007 19:32 GMT


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...

No hard drive can write that fast. Totally useless to have a connection speed that quick, it would be like having a car that can go 4,000 miles an hour, where are you going to drive it, and its not like any highway would even be able to support 5% of your total speed.

i bet in a game that would amount to a negative ping.you could probably matrix-ize yourself in BF2 and never get shot. You could shoot people and kill them even before you click the mouse to fire.

Let's assume the average web surfer could afford it, you'd still have to wait while your slow ass pentium 3 processed it.

that was the focus of the slashdot discussion. Nice demo but a bit misleading to the average person.

You're still limited to how fast the site you are browsing can go. If they are only on a DS3, you'd prob still get some choppy during peak jerk off hours.

Dammit. I was never a fan of the guy, but if we have another president like that puss-hound Clinton, we'll all have fast internet for cheap ass.

So, she has a 40Gbps connection, I bet she doesn't even have a NIC in her PC that can handle it. Remember, most PCs will only have a maximum of a 1Gigabit NIC. Even most Fibre Channel NICs are 4 or 10Gbps.

It is mostly useless. PCs won't even be able to use 10% of that bandwidth in this decade.

True, solid state right now is just limited by the bus speed. With zero seek time I really cant wait until they hit the consumer market on a large scale. NO MORE DRIVE CRASHES!!! Fuckin antiquated Hard Drive tech. of today sucks a fat one.
