40 Gigs Per Second...

If you know what that means, you are a geek for sure... If you don't know what that means, know this - with an Internet connection that fast, you could download a full-length movie to your PC (or Mac) in less than two seconds.


Or how about enjoying 1,500 high definition HDTV channels - simultaneously.

That's fast.

Who get's such premier access?

CNN reports here that it is none other than 75-year-old Sigbritt Lothberg of Stockholm, Sweden.

Seems her son Peter, a network guru, set out to prove that there are no limitations to Internet speed. So he hooked up his Mom.

She's a brand new Internet user - using the blazing connection only to read the newspaper online.

I hope CNN does a follow up to see what she's doing a month or two from now, once she builds up some savvy.

This was also covered previously by Wired, Slashdot, and a local Swedish outlet.
