75-Year-Old Woman Has Fastest Internet Connection in the World!
While she might be considered a late bloomer in technological terms, 75-year-old Sigbritt Lothberg now surfs the Internet at a blistering speed. Lothberg is the owner of a 40 gigabits-per-second, fiber-optic connection on her home computer in her native Karlstad City, Sweden.
It is believed to be the fastest residential uplink in the world, according to Karlstad City officials. In less than two seconds, Lothberg can download a full-length movie from the comfort of her own home. Her neighbors, like the majority of those who surf the Internet, are likely to be using a connection speed that is several thousand times slower. (Source: geeknews.net)
The head of the Karlstad City network unit, Hafsteinn Jonsson was very involved in establishing Lothberg's speedy connection. Jonsson worked tirelessly with Lothberg's son, Peter, to make the fastest connection in the world a reality.
How is this possible?
The speed is attained using a modulation technique that allows data to be sent between two routers placed up to 1,240 miles apart. The connection also functions well without any transponders needed in between the routers.
In a recent interview, Jonsson stated that the goal of the connectivity project was to show sceptics that there are virtually no limitations when it comes to Internet speed. Jonsson believes that the success of this project will likely open up a world of possibilities as it applies to the speed of Internet connections in the U.S. and abroad. (Source: usatoday.com)
Peter Lothberg, who is a networking expert in the U.S., said that he wanted to demonstrate the new technology while providing a computer link for his mother back home in Sweden. Currently residing in California, Lothberg said his mother is a brand-new Internet user. According to Peter, his mother didn't even own a computer before embarking on this connectivity project.
Sigbritt Lothberg isn't exactly making the most of her high-speed Internet connection. Apparently, she only uses the Internet to read web-based newspapers. (Source: usatoday.com)
