Old Swedish Lady Has Better Internet Connection Than We Do
WTF: Old Swedish Lady Has Better Internet Connection Than We Do
According to a story on CNN.com, 75-year-old Sigbritt Lothberg of Karlstad, Sweden is surfing the web at 40 gigabits-per-second. Karlsbad officials claim that her fiber-optic connection is allegedly the fastest residential uplink in the world.
In less than 2 seconds, Lothberg can download a full-length movie on her home computer -- many thousand times faster than most residential connections, said Hafsteinn Jonsson, head of the Karlstad city network unit.
Jonsson and the old lady's son, a networking expert, installed the connection. Meanwhile, she's never used the internet before, and she's currently using her high-speed connection to read online newspapers.
And if we wanted to get a same bandwidth here in the States? It's $7,500 to $14,000 per month for a T3 connection, depending on what service you go with (obviously priced for commercial use). I just did a bandwidth test here in New York, and I have a whopping 5.7 megabits per second (although it probably doesn't help that I'm running World of Warcraft right now).
^^ Die! why you don't go and stan for someone else? I don't know why I call you to comeback here back in 2011 you are such a damn annoying MESS! and now I get into the point of I CAN'T STAND YOU!
please do us a favor and retire.
Not even shading anyone in particular, but I'm convinced if you put a green wig and cute pumps on an inanimate object and gave it one Top 40 Dr. Luke or RedOne single, you will see threads praising and stanning for it, comparing it to Michael Jackson and how they're slayed by its good personality
