How unfair is this? Some 75-year-old woman is lucky enough to have a son who’s a big shot in the internet business, so she gets the fastest internet in the world. Jeez, she’s going to use it with her foot on the break anyway. Sigbritt Löthberg is now the lucky owner of 40 Gbit/second pipe, which is capable of downloading a DVD in under one second.
If you want another comparison, that’s like holding 1500 high def video streams all at once. The data is transfered using strictly optic fiber wires, though Sigbritt has also requested orthopedic beads for her desk chair. Bah hum bug. — Andrew Dobrow
