Some of this information is false...she *can* download many things simultaneously without noticeable lag, but she can *not* download one HD movie in 2 seconds, as there is a speed limit on the internet of, if I remember correctly, 56 mbps. This means that this is the fastest anybody, no matter their connection speed, can upload or download. File transfer within a local area network, is entirely different and does not have a speed cap.

answer time!

what does she use the connection to? she has commented that she mostly use it to read news online... (what a waste ;_;)

why do this whole thing? as the article says, and a few people here has commented, it was done to show people the possibilities in fiber technology. and it looks good!

and to the guy who commented that a connection like this is unnecesary (sp?) because no harddrive can write at that speed:
you are partly right. no single computer is able to write at that speed... but if you have a connection like that, even to you home, you most likely have several computers right? ok, you stil need somewhere around 120 computers before the connection is maxed out, but maybe someday that number will be lower.

"What`s the frakkin point? she may be able to download an HD DVD in 2 seconds but she`ll never find anyone who can upload it to her that fast so she`s limited by everyone elses connection now. I mean, it`s still gonna be a lot faster than I`m using, but after a certain point your just wastin money"

That may be true but then you could just download like a thousand blu-rays at one time because your d/l speed is so high you aren`t limited to how many d/l you can have at one time and maybe if you find a really nice torrent with like 10,000 ppl on it you might be able to download a blu, dvd, hd dvd w/e in no time if all the upload speed added up to close to 40 gbps

very nice!

Have you people who keep saying that the connection is too fast not read the article and the actual purpose of the connection?
The purpose is just to show how much better fibre is the normal crappy wiring.

“The most difficult part of the whole project was installing Windows on Sigbritt’s PC,” said Jonsson.

I`m sure that`s just a coincidence, and NOT a slam against Windows. ;-)

Anyhow, I`m totally going to move there and pretend to be her long-lost grandson or something. So long, suckers!

She might not be able to download ONE dvd in two seconds cause of upload restriction, but I wouldn`t be surprised if she could download a few hundred movies in less than an hour.

What`s the point, really? Noone will have an upload speed of 40 gbps in her life time, so she will never be able to use it to it`s fullest potential.

I hate my computer. It freezes and/or closes everything about five times a day. In fact, I just finished restarting it before I read this story.
