Everyone who has complained about the broadband speed delivered by their ISP should pause for a moment and be thankful that they are not living in South Africa and being supplied broadband access by Telekom.
Because South African pigeons are apparently faster then digital broadband when it comes to transferring data! According to the The Register, Winston the pigeon delivered 4Gb of data in the time it took the ISP to deliver just 4% of the same data to the same location over a broadband connection.
Mmm, a sort of tortoise and hare story for the technologically advanced 21st century. And not a very flattering one either…
