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.
