75 year old Granny pwns residential Internet speed record

At forty gigabits per second (yes, 40 and yes gigabits) a 75 year old woman from Sweden has made history by becoming the fist person at a residential location to have an internet connection at such an insane speed.

With this connection, Sigbritt Lothberg can watch 1500 High Definition TV channel simultaneously, or download a full high definition DVD in about 2 seconds.

No word yet on how she pings when playing Counter Strike, but theoretically she would have a negative value making her the first gamer to be technically fragging in the future.

More information.

Yeah and in Australia we're talking about rolling out 12mbit links at a cost of 5billion....

Someone show this link to the Labor and Libral parties, please.

Haha yes. I think 40gigabits/second converts roughly into 60 Lothbergs/second

why would she theoretically have a negative ping? you get a positive ping even when connecting over LAN.

also bandwidth doesn't decrease ping...

Fragging = Killing(online games, 1 kill = 1 frag) ... she's killing guys in the future because she's got negative ping :) .
