Submission + - Sigbritt is 75 years old and has 40 Gbps at home (com.com)

Xemu writes: "Swedish 75 year old Sigbritt has got what every nerd desires: her 40 gigabits per second home internet connection was setup by her son, Peter, who is working for the Swedish University Network. Peter installed a $300,000 Cisco CRS-1 router in his mother's garage. Sigbritt, who never previosly had internet, says she has tried to surf the net, but that she mostly uses the router to dry her laundry, because it gets hot. True story!"
