75-year-old Sibritt Löthberg from Karlstad Sweden just got her first computer, but it didn't take her long to download all the necessary patches.

Swedish news site The Local reports that Löthberg's home has been tricked-out with a record-breaking 40 Gb/s connection - the first time a private residence has tapped into the internet at such high speeds.

The blazing-fast connection comes courtesy her son, Peter Löthberg, a Swedish optical internet guru working at Cisco.

Ma Löthberg's house was converted into a broadband dog-and-pony act in an effort to promote high-speed fibre connections as a commercially viable platform.

"I want to show that there are other methods than the old fashioned ways such as copper wires and radio, which lack the possibilities that fibre has," said Peter Löthberg.

According to The Local, the secret sauce behind the connection is a new modulation technique that allows data to be transfered directly between two routers up to 2,000 km apart - with no intermediary transponders. This allows information to travel over huge distances without data loss.

With her blistering connection, Sigbritt Löthberg will be able to download a full high-definition DVD in just two seconds. Now if only there was a place for a Swede to utilize such a speed advantage...

As commented on before, its just a PR stunt. Not only is her NIC/Modem have to be an outrageous price, but common desktop hardware wouldnt be able to handle the data coming in this fast

you will need a fiber optics modem, fiber cales to your computer.Then aprocesor that can handle that much data at once. umm hard drive writing would be a problem. Huge delay, memory would be full in milliseconds or you can get 16 TB ram.
not even standard memoy can send data at that speed. The fastest video card could barely handle that much data.
SO, is this connect required for me, no. but if i got 1 / 10th of this speed, i'll be happy.

IMO, connections over 100 mb/s are completely useless in the home, because as of right now, most servers can't even give that speed. Anyways, having that connection must be freaking awesome.

It's not useless if you are downloading some files from some servers at the same time... ;)

Yeah, I didn't think of that. It is quite true.

too bad that the harddisks can't keep up with those speeds, so it takes a whole lot longer to download an hd-dvd

Why download it? If your connection is so fast, play it right off the web!

just a thought, as i'm not overly knowledgeable in Hardware, couldn't you use a RAID configuration so the data is being written to multiple drives?
so like instead of all going ot one drive (at maximum drive speed) you put a large data chunk on drive 1, another on 2 and etc? would that theoretically double, triple or quadruple your drive speed, and if you ahd enough fast drives, be able to meet 40GBp/s writting speed?

A RAID 0 configuration (or any other implying a striped set) would indeed increase (not double/triple/etc. as some is lost) the speed the volume could be written to at, but a) imagine the number of drives you'd need to reach such a tremendous speed and b) you'll hit the limits of the controller/bus much sooner.

With that connection you can download a dvd rip in 2 seconds, but your harddrive would not be capable to save the data @that speed...

A DVD rip will take about 0.2 seconds. An HD-DVD rip will take 2 seconds.

assuming you can FIND a place offering HD-DVD rips at that speed...
via bittorrent the fastest HD-DVD rip i ever found was at a measly ~400-500KBp/s.... and I doubt you'll find a DDL place.. if you do, I'm sure it ownt last

What should I say? I'm at dial-up at home :cry: German Telekom upgraded the copper cable to fiber glass and so I'm not able to get normal DSL and VDSL is to expensive to bring it to smaller towns :cry: :cry:

best deal, IF it's offered in your area

probably the closest and cheapest you'll get to 40GBp/s

The modifications to our current fiber lines to make them that fast would be basicly zero to the phone companies, but, as they must be, they cap the markets and jack up the prices. Now, all we need to do is bring on the Protien Coated Disks ;)
