Sigbritt Löthberg, a 75-year-old woman from Karlstad in Sweden can lay claim to the world's fastest internet connection.

Thanks to her son, internet expert Peter Löthberg, she currently enjoys an amazingly fast 40 gigabits per second connection.

This is the world's fastest, thousands of times faster than the average connection, and the first time a home user has enjoyed these kind of speeds.

The set-up was an experiment to try out a new technology in the real world to try and persuade industry to invest in faster connection tech.

Sigbritt can now download a full high definition DVD in just 2 seconds.

So, were there any technical hitches with the installation?

"The most difficult part of the whole project was installing Windows on Sigbritt's PC."
