How jealous am I?! Not that I really do that much downloading, but still. Now the question is, who's the woman's ISP and do they mind her accessing the Internet at such high speeds?

Self-deprecating humor at its finest; I love it.

BTW - Yahoo offers a very dumbed down version of the story, as their habit.

Well 4 Gbit isn't helpful in a practical Internet (1), most servers on the web have far lower speeds so a movie download won't take 2 seconds as claimed but a considerably longer time like 1 minute in a good day.
However if using it in a newer Internet (2), those speeds would be useful, where the network operates at more efficient speeds.
Now I remember when some guys were busted illegally filesharing on the Internet(2), that would be awesome [evil]

I think I saw that article a while back... doesn't the woman's son own the ISP she's using? He's doing this to prove something... not sure what.
