Old Lady is Real Spoiled

In STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 75-year-old Sigbritt Lothberg is now cruising the Internet with a dizzying speed of 40 gigabits-per-second with a fiber-optic connection in Karlstad, which is believed to be the fastest residential uplink in the world, Karlstad city officials said.

In less than 2 seconds, she can download a full-length movie!! Jonsson and Lothberg's son, Peter, worked together to install the connection.

Man, is she ever spoiled, because I'm sure someone will find a reason to "fix" it, and she is going to think that cable or DSL is like dial up!!

There are more, interesting details about the connection at cnn.com
