Swede shows off 40 Gig broadband connection

Over the last couple of years - thanks to a bit of market pressure and greater consumer awareness - high speed internet access has become the norm around the UK. But we still argue about what constitutes "high speed". Get a bunch of geeks around the table in a pub and somebody is bound to mention how fast: it's the webby equivalent of "My Dad's bigger than your Dad".

Whatever your download speed, though, it surely pales in comparison to that owned by Swedish pensioner Sigbritt Löthberg... who boasts a 40 gig internet connection.

Yes, that's right - 40 Gigabits per second.

Sigbritt will now be able to enjoy 1,500 high definition HDTV channels simultaneously. Or, if there is nothing worth watching there, she will be able to download a full high definition DVD in just two seconds.

The extraordinary speeds are no coincidence - Sigbritt's son is "Swedish internet legend" Peter Löthberg, who advises companies like Cisco on what they should be doing.
