Yo Mama got Jinternets!

And a lot of it too.

40Gbps of it, in fact. To you and me, that’s the capability to download a full-length movie from the internet in 2 seconds.

Sigbritt Lothberg of Sweden, 75, arguably has the fastest residential broadband connection in the world.

The connection requires at least USD100,000 worth of Cisco equipment (including a Cisco CRS-1 and OC768 DWDMPOS linecard, for the initiated/nerds/geeks), but I think she ran out of rackspace in her home’s datacenter and has had to put said expensive hardware in the garage:

CRS1

And what does she do with it? Read online news sites.

Before any of you gearheads start raising hell about the waste of bandwidth and equipment, just remember that this is a technology demonstrator to show that it’s possible to have high-bandwidth connections over long distances (up to more than 1,000 miles apart) between two network routers.  Or at least Sigbritt’s son claims.

Obviously, his mom is part of one of those “gilf” websites, and the bandwidth is needed for her web cam show.
