    Link: 75 Year Old Woman with World`s Fastest Internet - 40 gigabits per second, that`s about 5,000 times faster than the fastest cable modem.

    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

    Yeah well, there is no hard disk that can write 40 gigabits per second. I think normal HD write about 70-80 MB/s, so downloading stuff at 40 Gbps is not an option.

    “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!

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!

    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.

    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.
