75-year-old Sigbritt Löthberg of Sweden has the world’s fastest internet connection. She can receive information at 40 gigabytes per second, allowing her to receive 1500 high-definition TV signals at once, and download an entire DVD in two seconds. Löthberg never had a computer before now. She was the recipient of the setup because her son is Swedish internet legend Peter Löthberg.

“This is more than just a demonstration,” said network boss Hafsteinn Jonsson.

“As a network owner we’re trying to persuade internet operators to invest in faster connections. And Peter Löthberg wanted to show how you can build a low price, high capacity line over long distances,” he told The Local.

They wanted to prove that fiber technology makes such connections commercially viable.

“The most difficult part of the whole project was installing Windows on Sigbritt’s PC,” said Jonsson.
