World’s Fastest Broadband

It’s time to write letters to everybody!
The post at Raw Feed announced: World’s Fastest Broadband.

A 75-year-old woman in Sweden who has never owned a computer before now has the world’s fastest home internet connection — a whopping 40 Gigabits per second.

A demo of a residential fiber installation in Sweden is able to deliver 1,500 high definition HDTV channels simultaneously and download a full high definition DVD in just two seconds.

The secret behind Sigbritt’s ultra-fast connection is a new modulation technique which allows data to be transferred directly between two routers up to 2,000 kilometres apart, with no intermediary transponders. Peter Löthberg, now at Cisco, said he wanted to show how you can build a low price, high capacity line over long distances. “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.”
