Pigeon post beats South African broadband Internet

Posted on Friday, September 11 2009 @ 16:19:55 CEST by

BBC News reports a Durban IT company pitted an 11-month-old pigeon with a 4GB memory stick against the ADSL service from South Africa's biggest Internet firm, Telkom. The results are astounding, Winston (the pigeon) took just over two hours to carry the data 60 miles, while the ADSL connection had sent just 4 percent of the data, which equates to roughly 23KB/s.
The firm said Winston took one hour and eight minutes to fly between the offices, and the data took another hour to upload on to their system.

Mr Rolfe said the ADSL transmission of the same data size was about 4% complete in the same time.
