    Sigbritt Lothberg, a 75 year old granny in sweden, just got a 40 Gbps internet connection.

    Its about 20,000 times faster than 2 Mbps, and 6 Lakh 40 Thousand times faster than a dial-up.

    Interesting how such news spreads with such rapidity over the fibres, as it were... Lotherberg's home connection happens to be the fastest residential Internet connection on the planet.

    Lotherberg can download a full-length dual-layer DVD in two seconds, or watch 1500 HDTV channels streamed simultaneously.

    Let's see what Lotherberg might do with her connection, in increasing order of horror:
    1. Download windows updates
    2. Chat with relatives abroad
    3. Play Yahoo! games with jovial granny-friends right in Sweden
    4. Search for recipes online.

    How did she get such a fast connection, who is her ISP?

    Is it expensive?

    An entire copy of the internet's content would be humongous! "Only" 7... I can't imagine how many terabytes that would be.
    Would that be legal, though? Wouldn't they have a lot of files and articles that you're only granted access to after paying for membership to that site?
