Super Speedy Swedish Surfing Septuagenarian

21 07 2007

A seventy-five-year-old woman in Karlstad, Sweden, is surfing the internet at a quite staggering 40 Gb/s believed to be the fastest residential connection in the world. To put that in context, she can download a full length movie in under two seconds. Being the geek I am, my mind naturally jumped to how fast her upload is (as I assume that 40 GB/s is the download speed only, as is convention). The quite astounding thing is she did not even have a computer prior to getting the new setup and only uses it to read online newspapers. What a waste! Hey just think of all the valuable porn downloading she could be doing instead.
