The world’s fastest internet connection is in Sweden at 40 Gigabits per second connection – thousands of times faster than the average ADSL / DSL / Cable home Internet connection.
According to this article:
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.
Sigbritt, 75, has world’s fastest broadband
Currently I am using 512K :( broadband connection at home and we have 3 T3 lines at work. :D
University Corporation for Advanced Internet Development aka Internet2 can change the way we use Internet. According to Internet2 official site, “It is Led by more than 200 U.S. universities, working with industry and government, Internet2 develops and deploys advanced network applications and technologies for research and higher education, accelerating the creation of tomorrow’s Internet“.
According to Yahoo article, “…An Internet that leaves the current Internet in the dust is within reach. Some lucky individuals have already seen the possibilities thanks to the next-gen Net’s major research network, a consortium of more than 300 universities, research labs, government agencies, and corporations called Internet2…”
I will be happy to see such powerful high speed Internet2 at home (and I hope they will not forget about security and hackers/spammers).
