75 year old has fastest home broadband

A 75 year old woman from Karlstad in Sweden has been supplied with the world's fastest home internet connection.

Sigbritt Löthberg's has a 40 gigabits per second connection which is the first time ever that a home user had such bandwidth to play with.

Sigbritt, who had never had a computer until now, happens to be the mum of local internet legend Peter Löthberg who, along with Karlstad Stadsnät, the local council's network arm, arranged the connection.

Karlstad Stadsnät network boss Hafsteinn Jonsson said that this was more than just a demonstration. He was trying to get internet operators to invest in faster connections. And Peter Löthberg wanted to show how you can build a low price, high capacity line over long distances.

According to the Local, the silver surfer will be able to flick through 1,500 high definition HDTV channels simultaneously or download a full high definition DVD in just two seconds.

The ultra-fast connection is possible thanks to a modulation technique which allows data to be transferred directly between two routers up to 2,000 kilometres apart, with no intermediary transponders. Apparently the most difficult part of the project was installing Windows on Löthberg's PC.

It is not clear what Löthberg thought about the connection, or if she will even use it.
