A 75 year old woman from Karlstad in central Sweden has been thrust into the IT history books – with the world’s fastest internet connection.
Sigbritt LÃ¶thberg’s home has been supplied with a blistering 40 Gigabits per second connection, many thousands of times faster than the average residential link and the first time ever that a home user has experienced such a high speed.
But Sigbritt, who had never had a computer until now, is no ordinary 75 year old. She is the mother of Swedish internet legend Peter LÃ¶thberg who, along with Karlstad StadsnÃ¤t, the local council’s network arm, has arranged the connection.
People in India still struggling to get 256k connection.
