Sweden may be ranked number one in The Economist Intelligence Units Index of Democracy (who would have guessed), but now it can lay claim to another big hand waving #1 honour.

75-year-old Swede Sigbritt Lothberg is the owner of “what is believed to be” the fastest residential internet uplink in the world.

She uses technology so fast that it can download a movie in just 2 seconds by allowing the sending of data between two routers placed up to 1,240 miles apart, without any transponders in between.

MSNBC.com reports:

 Hafsteinn Jonsson, head of the Karlstad city network unit and Lothberg’s son, Peter, worked together to install the connection.

“We wanted to show that that there are no limitations to Internet speed,” he said.

Peter Lothberg, who is a networking expert, said he wanted to demonstrate the new technology while providing a computer link for his mother.

“She’s a brand new Internet user,” Lothberg said by phone from California, where he lives. “She didn’t even have a computer before.”

His mother isn’t exactly making the most of her high-speed connection. She only uses it to read Web-based newspapers.

Så njuta av din långsam så helvete Internet tjänst förloraren!
